Summary

Summary

One of the world's greatest wine writers has given us a completely revised and updated edition of his authoritative and vastly informative bestselling A-Z guide to the world of wine. Bursting with information, the New Encylopedia of Wine includes 1,588 entries covering the world's leading wines, wine regions, wine producers, and grapes, and is sumptuously illustrated with more than 600 color photographs, maps, wine labels, and other illustrations. As easy to use for the beginner as it is informative for the expert, the New Encylopedia is organized alphabetically rather than by region, allowing the wine lover to find any wine, region, producer, or grape with ease. Other sections include introductions to the major wine-producing countries of the world; practical advice on storing and serving wine, including classic wine matches; and a glossary of wine-making techniques and terms-all covered in straightforward, simple language.

Booklist Review

Not as wide-ranging as The Oxford Companion, with entries limited to wines, wine regions, producers, and grape varieties. We reviewed the previous edition in our February 15, 1994, issue, calling it "a delight to browse."
