Product Description

Review

"With "1001 Wines," you'll learn about, and hope for, a taste of some of the world's most sought-after wines." "San Francisco Chronicle""But this massive tome goes way beyond the vapid approach of so many such works, with tasty tidbits and inside information on a masterfully chosen list." "The Star Tribune""The list is not of the greatest wines or of authors' favorites; instead, it includes intriguing, historical, and influential wines. All of them can be purchased, although some are rare and expensive." "Library Journal"

Book Description

Insightful, informative and entertaining, written by a team of wine connoisseurs and experts. Can be referred to and used as well as read purely for pleasure and interest.

A good size of book, although quite heavy to hold. Fabulous pictures, especially as the recipient had been to the very spot in some photos! Nice to see some of the bottle shapes and an excellent idea to have one page per wine. Plenty of interesting facts and background stories. Don't usually buy "...Before You Die" titles, however this book makes up for it by being attractive and informative.

If I try one a week I am in with a fighting chance! Buy this if you are still young, or if you are as old as me, start drinking heavily!

Now I'm glad to write a review of this item, because it was no small article!! Of a fair size, & over 1000 pages, it was like two house bricks arriving side by side!! Yet whoever packed it did a fantastic job, ensuring it was as solid as could be, and ensuring that there was no tearing at the corners on such a heavyweight parcel. It smelt a little musty (probably had been stored away somewhere) but was a steal for such a second-hand book that was in first class condition

Amazing pictures and clear, simple yet comprehensive details about the wines, the things you'd want to know to try them. Like that the price range is given too, with wines for every budget and taste. I bought this as a gift and am delighted with my purchase

A great book which I refer to often for new wines to try as well as to buy for the wine tasting events that I hold for friends . I like the bottle label pictures too as I am often tempted by those as much as the description of the wine .
