The drinking of wine is a celebration of life, good food, and special company. It is one of the great pleasures of the world, and its enjoyment is enhanced by an understanding of its varieties, flavors, and styles.
Year after year, this extraordinary, easy-to-use course is universally praised by wine experts and beginners alike. Newly revised for 2001, with 16 more pages, a never-before-included question-and-answer section, new labels, and revised vintages, this edition will answer all your important questions about wine and start you on the road to becoming a connoisseur.
With a completely fresh approach to the subject, Kevin Zraly offers a look at the trends in wine over the last ten years and takes you on a country-by-country, region-by-region, 'best buy' ratings tour of the latest vintages. You'll love his lighthearted style, and you'll appreciate his glossary of wine terms and his tips on stocking and serving wine at home, ordering it in restaurants (including the hows and whys of the 'tasting ritual'), and much more.
Find out what a 'true' Burgundy is, what the good years are for a California Cabernet Sauvignon, and what foods best complement a Chardonnay. Learn about the relative 'newcomers' to the wine scene, such as the Merlots, and uncover the secrets of choosing a good champagne, sherry, or port. Before long, you'll be savoring great-tasting wines without spending a lot of money. Dozens of illustrations, including full-color labels you should know, supplement the Zraly style.
Wine doesn't have to be intimidating, and Kevin Zraly makes it easy for the newcomer to feel comfortable. As always, he believes that your taste buds are the best judges of a wine. But we know you have questions, so pull a bottle off the rack and join us for a uniquely intoxicating chat, when Kevin Zraly joins us to discuss Windows on the World Complete Wine Course 2001 Edition!
