Understanding Wine Labels (Hardcover) by Woods, Simon
This book ensures that you will pick the perfect bottle even when faced with row after row of confusing labels. Simon Woods gives clear and practical guidance on how to read any wine label, decifering the jargon used on labels from all of the major wine-producing countries around the world. There are full-colour representative labels featured for each country and region. He explains what each is required to show on the bottle and how some wine producers utilize these laws to their own advantage. There are also unusual examples of wine labels and a discussion on whether the label reflects the wine inside the bottle.
