Description: Many people find the wide variety of wines on a restaurant wine list, let alone on the crowded shelves of a liquor store, rather daunting. But a little knowledge can offer you a world of discovery and enjoyment. In Enjoying Wine, popular wine writer Chris Losh starts by taking you right back to the beginning. He explains how factors such as soil, climate, and barrels can affect how simple grape juice develops into wine, and explains how you can find clues to its taste on wine labels.
In Where Wine Comes From, Chris takes you around the world from Australia to California, describing how different countries approach wine making and what styles they are known for. He then looks at Grape Varieties, from Merlot to Muscat, including lists of Famous White and Red Wines. Chris also explores rose, sparkling, and sweet and fortified wines.
The next chapter, Choosing Wine, concentrates on matching the right wine to specific occasions and styles of cuisine. As food has strong flavors of its own, his advice is invaluable, especially when you are facing a restaurant wine list. He also offers a light- hearted look at what to take on a visit to your in-laws and what to drink in front of the television!
A chapter on Cooking with Wine offers a selection of 20 delicious recipes from top food writers. All incorporate wine, from the classic Coq au Vin to cutting-edge Chocolate and Cabernet Pots.
Finally, Chris offers essential advice on Practicalities, from storing and serving to identifying wine faults. He also describes how to set up your own fun winetasting at home to improve your tasting skills.
