This is a great wine book. The way it was written can be understood by anyone whether you are a starter or a wine enthusiast. I find it so easy to understand, brief and concise. You will see each wine described, food to match which is why I purchased this. It was the actual book I am searching for a long time!

Book exactly what is required for beginners

delighted with this book, as someone who knows nothing about wine, this gives the right level of information to get going with.

WWCWC 2007 Delivers

This is an excellent book to learn the basics of wine and wine regions. It is very easy to read and is laid out in a nice format. This book was recommended to me by one of my wine merchants. I just finish a Wine Professional course and our book was over 800 pages. This book is a Reader's Digest version of the one I used in class.

Required Reading

I recently became an independent wine consultant with The Traveling Vineyard. In short, I conduct wine tastings in people's homes. Part of the training for this position was reading this book. I highlighted, made note cards, and find myself constantly referring back to it. The best vintages for the varietals was by far, my favorite. But I have also used a lot of the facts to play trivia games at my wine tasting events. I would have liked less emphasis on French wines and more emphasis on American wines, but that is the only negative I can think of. Also, the food/wine pairings are really elaborate and I don't think most people would be found cooking these items up in their kitchen. But all in all, it was a great book to read to become familiar with the varieties and where they are grown. I just purchased a couple of books by Andrea Immer as I started watching her show and I'll be interested to compare the two styles. I'm sure I'll review her book here as well!

A fun & accessible way to learn about wine

First and foremost you will ENJOY reading this book ! You can either skip around or go through it in a logical progression of basic wines to very fine wines of each region and grape variety.Ultimately you will come away with literally tons of information about how wine is grown, made, tasted, bought and above all enjoyed. Plus you will have lots of interesting tidbits to impress your friends with when dinnertable conversation pauses. All around an enjoyable experience.

Great Book for Wine Novice

This book is essential for a budding wine connoisseur. It keeps things simple and introduces you to the wine regions of the world, grape varieties etc.
