The new wine lover's companion

by Ron Herbst | 05 August 2017
Synopsis
Enlarged and updated with information about the myriad changes enacted by the European Union over the last few years and their effect on member nations, newly flourishing wine-growing regions, enhanced coverage of vinicultural practices, and additional wine making terms, The New Wine Lover's Companion informs, advises, and enlightens readers with approximately 4,000 entries that describe wines produced all around the world. The A-to-Z entries describe grape varieties; wine styles; wine growing regions; wine making techniques; wine-tasting terms; sizes and styles of glassware, wine bottles and wine openers; optimal temperatures for serving different wines; and much more. The original edition of this book was hailed by Jurgen Gothe of the Vancouver Sun as the best new wine book in more than a decade. . . and this new edition is better than ever. One of the many qualities that has made The New Wine Lover's Companion so popular is its accessibility. No wine snobbery here. The author serves up solid information about vintages, varieties, and which wine goes best with which food in a relaxed, conversational style that doesn't intimidate readers. Following the A-to-Z entries, additional advice and information includes Tips on buying wine. Ordering wine in a restaurant. Understanding the information on wine bottle labels. Opening and serving wine at home. How to store leftover wine . . . and much more. Here is everything worth knowing about buying, storing, serving, and enjoying the world's most civilised beverage; wine! Includes extensive appendices, charts, a glossary, and a bibliography.
