The principal aim of this review was to undertake a study of terminological resources relating to winemaking and to discover the origin, development and state of the art of wine terminology. The present study covers all relevant aspects of wine terminology and terminography, and it also digs into history to reconstruct the development and growth of a most fascinating and valuable branch of terminology. Illuminating the context in which wine terminology started its development as a separate branch of general terminology, this study shows different periods and stages of the development of winemaking terminology, reveals the far-reaching linguistic and cultural interpenetration of its word-stock and highlights the dynamics of wine terminology research and analysis in different countries of the world. It develops a classification of winemaking terminological resources, studies links between wine terminology and other industries (e.g. culinary terminology) and explains contribution made by Henri Faes and Eero Alanne to the development of winemaking terminology, as well as contributions by a number of industry professionals.
