Publisher's Weekly Review

The wines of South Africa, Italy, Germany, China and dozens of other countries and regions are explored in Andre Domine's gorgeous, gargantuan Wine. Incorporating a dizzying amount of information from a diagram of the olfactory mucosa to an exploration of proper vineyard soils, a discussion of the "Hades" method of wine maturation and recommendations about which white to have with oysters this tome is sure to please oenophiles and novices alike. And with more than 1,500 color illustrations detailed maps, vivid photographs of vineyards and snow-capped Alps by Armin Faber and Thomas Pothmann the book is as attractive as it is informative.

Library Journal Review

Both novice and experienced wine lovers will savor this lushly illustrated, gorgeously packaged introduction to the world of wine. After opening with a brief history of this intoxicating potable, it covers the basics on choosing, serving, tasting, and storing wine. Readers are then whisked into the vineyard to see how grapes are cultivated and into the winery to observe the bottling process. The book's focus then shifts from an overview of its subject to a detailed look at 13 different wine-producing regions and countries. Coverage of each region or country includes a historical overview, detailed growing maps, production details and statistics, and a selection of wine producers with samples of their labels. The Oxford Companion to Wine (LJ 12/94) will still be the first choice for libraries needing a basic reference to this subject, but with its sleek visual look and abundant illustrations and photographs, this volume by Domine (who edited Culinaria France) will be a valuable counterpart to this standard source. Recommended for both academic and large public libraries. John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
