About the Books:
In 2008, the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science registered with the Library of Congress and became a publisher. The resulting books were made possible with the support of Fritz Maytag, president of Anchor Brewing Company. The goal of the partnership was to re-issue influential books of historical significance to American agriculture. The series includes four titles, covering histories of wine, cheese making, vegetables and olives. The books are available at the campus bookstore, and online through UC Davis Stores.
