Kevin Zraly's incomparable course ("One of the best start-from-scratch wine books ever written."-- Frank Prial, The New York Times) is still America's top-selling guide to wine. In this year's revised edition, Zraly shares some of the authoritative knowledge on buying wine that he's acquired over the last 30 years: this new, exclusive, and invaluable "How to Buy Wine" section covers retailers, auctions, Internet sites, and just about anywhere a bottle can be purchased. What stays constant is Zraly's inimitable, irreverent style. He answers every question about wine; 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--some brand new--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.

Book News Annotation:

Attractively produced, friendly, and informative, this introduction to wines can be enjoyed alone or used as part of a course. Material is arranged in sections on white grapes and red grapes, with the primary wine-making regions of the world examined in eight chapters, for eight classes. This year's edition includes a new section on buying wine and recommendations for purchases in various price categories. Windows on the World restaurant was located in the World Trade Center; wine expert and teacher Zraly worked there from 1976 until September 11, 2001, but he was not present on the day of the attacks.
