About the Author:

Kevin Zraly is the founder and teacher of the Windows on the World Wine School that has graduated more than 14,000 students. He is the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the European Wine Council and the James Beard Award, among others. Zraly has been featured in the New York Times, People, the Wall Street Journal, GQ, Newsweek, and USA Today and is a Georges Duboeuf Book Award Winner.

From Booklist:

Already justly renowned for his popular Windows on the World Complete Wine Course, Zraly now turns to the world of wine writing with an anthology of articles about wine that appeals particularly to the inquisitive novice looking for a structured approach to the vast world of wine lore. The greatest mystery for many is how to express in words the many diverse sensations that wine can bring to the palate. So Zraly reproduces Lettie Teague’s brief essay on tasting vocabulary. Evan Goldstein contributes his informed opinions on pairing wines with all sorts of different foods. Alan Richman gives a glimpse into that rarefied company of connoisseurs who seek out the scarcest and best wines and for whom mere price is never an obstacle. Multiple authors help introduce the stunning variety of wines from all the world’s major production areas, and sort through their most significant bottlings. --Mark Knoblauch
