If you know someone who loves both wine and “The Golden Girls,” this just may be the perfect holiday gift. If there were a stronger word than LOVE, I would use it here to describe Rue’s feelings for wine. As you can see from the photos posted, Rue kept quite an extensive collection of wine on the racks in the dining area of her Manhattan apartment. Rue used this book – “The World Atlas of Wine” – to research grapes, types of wine, regions, anything and everything having to do with wine production, and then she would order various bottles to sample what she had read about and complement her wine education with actual experience. This book is big and it is heavy – it measures 9.5″ x 12″ – it is a research tool as well as beautifully put together, there are stunning photographs from around the world. Rue’s wine atlas comes with prints of the photos shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
