9780764142659: New Wine Lover's Companion, The

Enlarged and updated with information about recent praiseworthy vintages and newly flourishing wine-growing regions, The New Wine Loverâ s Companion informs, advises, and enlightens readers with approximately 4,000 entries that describe wines produced all around the world. The A-to-Z entries describe grape varieties; wine styles; wine-growing regions; winemaking techniques; wine-testing terms; sizes and styles of glassware, wine bottles and wine openers; optimal temperatures for serving different wines; and much more. The original edition of this book was hailed by Jurgen Gothe of the Vancouver Sun as â the best new wine book in more than a decade. . . â and this new third edition is better than ever. One of the many qualities that has made The New Wine Loverâ s Companion so popular is its accessibility. No wine snobbery here. The authors serve up solid information about vintages, varieties, and which wine goes best with which food in a relaxed, conversational style that doesnâ t intimidate readers. Following the A-to-Z entries, additional advice and information includes:

  • Tips on buying wine
  • Understanding the information on wine bottle labels
  • Ordering wine in a restaurant
  • Opening and serving wine at home
  • How to store leftover wine . . . and much more

    Here is everything worth knowing about buying, storing, serving, and enjoying the worldâ s most civilized beverage--wine! Includes extensive appendices, charts, a glossary, and a bibliography.
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
