Never before has a collection of the world's leading wine experts and writers gathered together to produce the one thorough and definitive book on wine. Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers from every corner of the globe worked to provide the most current and comprehensive reference. From Burgundy to Zimbabwe, from Turkmenistan to Uruguay, this encyclopedia covers every aspect of wine from its history to its making and enjoyment.
Each chapter is virtually a book in itself. From the popular wine growing regions of the world to the more arcane–it is all here. All organized in a style where you can quickly reference the region you are seeking. A Wine Reference Table of over 5,000 wines provides you with a brief description, the food compatibility and price range on more wines than any other book. If you are serious about wine, this is the one book you will need to have on your shelf.
