Synopsis

Enlarged and updated with information about recent praiseworthy vintages and newly flourishing wine-growing regions, 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; winemaking techniques; wine-testing 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 third 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 authors serve 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:
