The book traces this long history at a number of levels: the expansion and contraction of regional and national vineyard areas; long- and short-term changes in the volumes of wine produced; the effects of long- and short-term climate shifts on viticulture and wine production; the emergence of recognizable wine regions and designated appellations; changing methods of viticulture and winemaking; the marketing of wine locally and regionally within France and internationally; the reception of wine on domestic and foreign markets; the diverging levels of quality and the emergence of prestigious wine regions and estates; the evolving definition of terroir; the regulation of wine production and sales and the prevention of fraud; patterns of wine consumption in France; and the relationship of wine to gender, class, health, religion, and identity in France."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
