Redding provides a detailed viticultural tour of the world from the vineyards of France and Spain to those of Greece, Persia, India and Australia. Like many other early 19th century writers, Redding's work is filled with references to classical works by Columella, Hippocrates and Athenaeus. Excessive imports duties on wine had made it a luxury in England and as a result only those with the means to buy wine and education were exposed to wine literature.
