Gail Unzleman, with a keen interest in wine and its history, has been collecting wine books (and related materials, e.g., pre-prohibition California wine postcards and advertising ephemera) for some forty years. The Unzelman Library now numbers close to 4000 books -- in all languages -- dating from the 15th century to the present day. This interest led to helping establish, in 1990, "The Wayward Tendrils -- A Wine Book Collector's Society." Since that date she has edited and published Wayward Tendrils Quarterly, a 24- to 36-page journal devoted to wine books, wine authors, wine libraries, bibliography, and all such matters relating to wine literature. She has written and published, through her Nomis Press -- also established in 1990 -- a number of wine-related books, as well as assisted in titles published by Kylix Press and Arcadia Publishing.
