Summary

Summary

You don't have to be a wine expert to get a good deal on a great bottle. Without stuffy, technical terms-and without talking down to the inexperienced wine buyer-Daniel Johnnes lays out all the basics that the consumer needs to know before making his or her next purchase. This edition, newly updated for 2004, includes:
* Daniel Johnnes's opinion of 200 wines, including more than 80 wines of recent vintage added since the first edition
* Explanations of grape varieties and the wine-making process
* How to start a wine cellar for only $750
* Helpful hints on everything from uncorking the bottle to complementary dishes
Most important, Johnnes makes the distinction between cheap wines and wines of good value-if a wine is truly great, it may be worth paying a little more than you expected.
