Ideal for anyone who wants to know about wine and to make the right choices without being overwhelmed with information, this guide explains wine jargon in simple terms, provides expert tips to give you the inside track, and puts wine snobbery and wine myths firmly in their place.
In this introductory guide, wine jargon is explained in simple terms, expert tips give you the inside track, and wine snobbery and wine myths are put firmly in their place. Straightforward explanations detail what wine is, how it is made and why both flavour and quality vary so much from one wine to the next. A guide to the most important grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay) describes their characteristic tastes and styles and the sorts of foods they go well with. All the key elements of enjoying wine are included: how to taste, buy, store and serve wine, how to choose wine in a restaurant and how to match wine and food. A virtual tour of the shelves of a wine shop gives essential information on the wines of each country and region: the flavours, the styles, the quality and affordability. The book is for anyone who wants to know about wine and to make the right choices without being overwhelmed with information.
