Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Windows on the World Complete Wine Course is simply the bestselling wine book in the United States—its a classic. And this new edition contains an additional 16 wonderful pages, including a featured supplement about the olfactory system and how it deepens our enjoyment of wine. Written in a question-and-answer format, the section is coauthored with Wendy Dubit, an expert on the subject. Plus, this unequaled volume retains all the invaluable information, fabulous illustrations, and gorgeous styling of the 20th anniversary edition. Wine lovers will still thrill to Zralys inimitable, irreverent style. As always, he answers every question about wine; offers the most up-to-date recommendations; provides advice on buying wine in stores and on the Internet; 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 complete the enticing picture. More current, more informative, more concise and precise than ever, this remains the wine guide against which all others are judged.

Synopsis:

Zraly employs his usual inimitable, irreverent style as he takes a close look at America's wines and their history, discussing varieties from all 50 states. His tips and guidelines for purchasing are wonderfully invaluable to wine enthusiasts.

No one matches Kevin Zraly for teaching the novice or giving experts the most current information about wine. Now, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Zraly's definitive work, the world's bestselling guide to wine receives a complete update. As always, Zraly deftly takes the mystery out of wine, recommending hundreds of new wines (all under $30!) and providing the latest information on vintage wines. But this thoroughly redesigned edition also presents a beautiful tribute to the renowned restaurant, Windows on the World, where Zraly's course began in 1976 and continued until September 11, 2001. Thanks to user-friendly smartphone tags throughout, there are videos to enlighten key points and audio guides to help you correctly pronounce 1,300 wine names and terms.
