Available exclusively from The Wine Appreciation Guild, the book covers the fundamentals of wine analysis, from the essential aspects of viticulture, winemaking and styles of wine, to defects and flaws, sensory analysis, and grape varietal characteristics.
Michelsen also takes a revealing look at marketing principles, the relationship between price and quality (grade), and individual features of the world’s wine markets.
“Clive Michelsen's book is a thought-provoking addition to the arena of wine-tasting study. His experienced and individualistic approach to tasting and grading is both original and rigorous.”
