John Keats’ ‘beaker of the warm South’ must be the most famous glass of wine in poetry. Who could fail to remember the ‘beaded bubbles’ and the ‘purple-stained mouth’? We can almost taste the rich berry notes as we read.

This selection features part of that much-loved paean to a luscious red, alongside poems that celebrate delicious wines of other hues. We experience a grape harvest in Spain which is celebrated as a form of alchemy, and a wedding reception at which wine represents all the good things that lie ahead for the new couple.

Elsewhere, one poet’s experience of a glass of Sauvignon Blanc is so intense that she almost becomes the wine as she drinks.
