This full-colour, large-format book looks at wine grouped by style: i.e. Dry Whites, Medium Whites, Sweet Whites, through to Dry Reds, Sparkling and Fortified Wines, radically different from the traditional geographical approach.
This full-colour, large-format book takes a radically different approach from the traditional geographical perspective and instead, looks at wines grouped by style: dry whites, medium whites, sweet whites, through to dry reds, sparkling and fortified wines. The advantage of this approach is that the reader can really begin to understand the varieties and tastes of wine and gain the ability to compare similar types of wine. It focuses heavily on practical wine tasting sessions to really encourage the reader to teach themselves the art of wine tasting. These sessions will be guided by the author and enable readers to discover for themselves the differences between the main wine varieties. It is backed by the approval of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust, who have agreed to endorse the book.
