Description: When you visit the wine store, you can buy wine from every corner of the globe. The choice of wines grows apace as old grapes are grown in new places and newer varieties become widely available. So while today's wine is still made according to ancient principles, today's wine-drinkers may need a little guidance to find the best bottles around.
This easily digestible book contains all the guidance you need. Choosing Wine concentrates on the taste of wine; savoring and enjoying a glass with dinner, or sharing a bottle with friends.
Award-winning wine expert Andrew Jefford begins with an overview of Grapes and Places, describing the major red and white grape varieties and the type of wines produced in different countries, so you know what to expect when reading a label. He then goes on to describe Wine Styles, from light reds to dry whites and dessert wines, including tips on which foods go well with each style.
If you're looking for a particular flavor, or want a bottle to complement a meal, here are the answers -- plus new ideas to encourage you to broaden your range. Choosing Wine has everything you need to discover the wonderful world of wine.
