Definition of term:: Gabler

  • Refers to the standard reference book about wine books printed in the English language, Wine Into Words: A History and Bibliography of Wine Books in the English Language by James M. Gabler. Originally published in 1985, it was reissued in a greatly enlarged version in 2004, and with the numbering system used to identify the books changed. Thus if someone quotes a Gabler number at you, you'd better find out what edition they used to determine what book they are referring to.
French: Gabler
