About Wine is a unique text that presents students of the culinary arts with the practical and detailed knowledge necessary to managing wine and wine sales for restaurants and the hospitality business. Intended for students enrolled in restaurant and/or hospitality management courses, the five distinct sections of the text cover the basics of wine, the wine regions of the world, types of wine, and the business of wine. This text seeks first to give the reader a background in the origins of wine and how it is produced. The text introduces such topics as the vineyard, the winery, and tasting wines. It then builds upon this knowledge with information on the different wine producing regions of the world and the numerous variations of wine they produce. The text concludes with a section on the business of wine, which includes selling and serving wines, developing and managing a wine list, and buying and cellaring wines. Special features of the text include detailed color diagrams and photographs throughout to keep the text interesting and engaging. Useful appendices designed for use as a quick reference or as a starting place for more research are also included, making this text a valuable resource even after formal training has ended.
