About this title

Synopsis:

An accessible and and practical guide for novice and expert alike. It contains advice on selecting, keeping, uncorking, decanting and serving. It covers, not only the wines of Europe, but also the New World of America, Australia and South America.

Review:

Filled with practical information on everything anyone would need to know about wine, this wonderfully illustrated reference book will appeal to the novice as well as the serious wine enthusiast. Subjects such as reading a wine label, selecting wine, storing, uncorking, decanting, and serving are all carefully explained and illustrated.

For the serious enthusiast, the greatest value of this book will be its comprehensive coverage of the wine-producing regions of the world. Each section begins with a beautiful color illustration of the area, with the major districts, rivers, and cities highlighted. A short history and analysis of each region follows, with a discussion of the types of wines produced in each district, the specific oenological properties that make the region unique, and the appelations of the area. Though a fairly large book (more than 600 pages), this would be an invaluable reference to bring along on your next wine-tasting trip--whether that takes you to The Rhone, Burgundy, Napa, or Walla Walla.
