SIMON, André L.

(1877 - 1970)
“Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized.”

The grandfather of wine writers, Simon wrote over a hundred books and pamphlets on wine. 

Born in Paris, he came to London at the age of 25 as the English agent for the champagne house of Pommery and Greno and remained in Britain for the rest of his life. Shortly after arriving Simon embarked upon his first book The History of the Champagne Trade in England. "Simon's English prose style: [is] unmistakably charming, stately and faintly whimsical at once."(High Johnson, Oxford Wine Companion).

“Andre Simon - bibliophile, gourmet, wine connoisseur, historian and writer - is unrivalled in his contribution to the ‘art of good living’.” - James Gabler (Wine into Words)
