Containing vivid descriptions of 350 grape varieties in an easy-to-use A-Z format, it looks at wine history, places, people, styles, and flavors, and offers hundreds of recommendations.

From the Back Cover:

From Albarino to Zinfandel, an essential reference for both the connoisseur and the novice
""If we have any interest in wine and its flavors, we have to be interested in the grape variety itself. If we have any interest in how a wine matures and changes with age, we have to know about the potential of the particular grape. If we care about the style of a wine, whether it should be sweet or dry, fizzy or fortified or still, each different grape variety's peculiar talents will be of prime importance."--Oz Clarke"

First published in hardcover as "Oz Clarke's Encyclopedia of Grapes," "Oz Clarke's""Grapes and Wines" is newly revised and updated to provide the most current information on an even wider array of grapes.
Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and fifteen other "classic" grapes are covered in depth--with features on tradition and innovation, methods used in the vineyard and the winery, and different wine styles around the world. The people behind the world's best wine talk about what they do and what they are trying to achieve.
Oz also provides vivid descriptions of more than three hundred grape varieties organized in his renowned A-to-Z format, as well as a glossary of technical terms and a wine decoder that lists which grapes go into which wines.
"Well-written and beautifully illustrated."--"Dallas"" Morning-Star Telegram"
"A nicely packaged alphabetical directory of 350 varieties with lively commentary."--"Chicago"" Tribune"
"Authoritative . . . Offers in-depth information about today's most important grape varieties."--Anthony Dias Blue, "Orient Express Magazine"
