Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kevin Zraly's incomparable course--"One of the best start-from-scratch wine books ever written," wrote Frank Prial in The New York Times--is still America's top-selling guide to wine. In his inimitable, irreverent style, Zraly answers all your questions; offers the most up-to-date recommendations; takes you on a country-by-country, region-by-region ratings tour of the latest vintages; and starts you on your way to becoming a wine connoisseur. Abundant full-color labels and maps entice you. And, now The Windows on the World Wine Course is more than just the best book on the market. This new edition of Zraly's masterwork features his loving and personal history of Windows on the World, right from its very beginning. It's a touching tribute to his co-workers who lost their lives on September 11th.

For each book sold, Sterling Publishing will donate one dollar to the Windows of Hope Family Relief Fund. And, Zraly's contributions to oenophiles continues as well; The Windows on the World Wine School remains in business at the Mariott Hotel.

"This update of the best-selling hardcover on wine is till the top introductory book available."--Booklist. "Are you intimidated by wine stewards? Read Kevin Zraly's new edition of Windows on the World Complete Wine Course and order with aplomb."--Playboy. "The liveliest short course on wine ever wrapped between two covers."--Boston Globe. "Brims with enthusiasm...breezy, down-to-earth...reads like an interesting conversation."--Chicago Tribune. "As entertaining as it is informative. A masterful job of simplifying a complex subject and making it fun in the process."--Barbara Ensrud, New York Daily News.
