Clara Orban, AB'81, PhD'90

Wine Lessons is a basic guide to wine appreciation. Clara Orban, a professor of French and Italian, is also a certified sommelier. In her ten years of teaching Geography 350: The World of Wine at DePaul University in Chicago, she found that students often had similar questions from year to year. This illustrated book allows readers who wish to know more about wine to learn the fundamentals of grapes, wine growing areas, soil, climate, and other aspects that go into wine production. The book also has handy pull out cards to help you purchase the right wines and glasses for any occasion.
