Review:

“The breadth and depth of detail is astonishing, and the inclusion of entries from less-heralded wine-producing regions such as India makes the volume comprehensive . . . Vintners are scored when possible or otherwise commented on, and noteworthy bottlings are singled out. Color photography abounds, and select wineries are highlighted in sidebars or whole pages . . . This sharply observed and written reference guide to bubbly merits a home in any oenology collection. VERDICT A superb tome to pore over or dip into selectively. Highly recommended for libraries where books on wine are popular.Library Journal (Starred Review)
