The Glory of Wine tells how man and nature collaborate to produce wine. It follows the process from start to finish, including details on the countries involved. Clear and concise, the book offers the reader an enormously rich introduction to the subject. It provides a a solid foundation for understanding wine and offers basic yet specific information while avoiding the dangers of obsolescense. It has been called "informative without being dogmatic, interesting without being esoteric."From the Author:
I wrote The Glory of Wine for those who know a few things about wine and would like to know a few things more, who wish to be wine literate. With this book, one can proceed with confidence when confronting a wine list in a restaurant or when selecting a bottle for a dinner at home.
