Oneophile Records

If you're a beer guzzler, this probably isn't for you. So go back to your Motley Crue albums. I'll have something for you later on this week.

This one's for the classy people....

If you love wine, fine cuisine and the good life, you'll be happy to know through the miracle of the vinyl LP record, selecting and serving wine has never been easier.

In the late 1960s, a couple albums were released targeting the oneophile or wine connoisseur.  The first is On Wine by Peter Sichel (Columbia Special Products, 1966).

(This is Side One of this album. Side Two, which isn't included had light classical and jazz music. Presumably the stuff that goes good with wine.)
Basically, if you're confused on what wine to serve with what food, these records will set you straight. I for one am not a huge wine drinker (more of a beer or bourbon type.) 
Tho other is The Joy Of Wine by Alex Lichine (MGM Records, 1967)
 You can hear the complete double album here. (Thanks to WFMU's Beware of The Blog.)
