Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first edition of this popular wine reference was hailed by Jurgen Gothe of the Vancouver Sun as "the best new wine book in more than a decade." The New Wine Lover's Companion has been completely rewritten and updated to make it even better. No wine snobbery here. This book's style is relaxed and conversational, serving up information without intimidating its reader. Arranged alphabetically, nearly 4,000 entries include innumerable details on grape varieties; wine styles; wine-growing regions; wine label terms; winemaking techniques; how to buy, store, and serve wine; how to have a wine tasting; wine-testing terms; sizes and styles of glassware, wine bottles, and wine openers; ordering wine in a restaurant; opening and serving wine at home; temperatures for serving wine; and much more. This book is the only A-to-Z wine reference that offers phonetic pronunciations. It boasts a totally revised and expanded appendix enhanced with charts, line art, and sample labels. Praise for the previous edition came from many food and dining authorities: "'an invaluable, user-friendly reference. I learned something from the very first page I turned to, and keep learning as I keep turning." --William Rice, Food and Wine Columnist, Chicago Tribune . . . "A great reference! . . . excellent and accurate source for both wine professionals and those involved with wine purely for the love of it." --Jacques Pepin, cookbook author and TV chef
