(a) The wine tools- How to taste,How to drink,How to learn
(b) The factors for good wine - Grapes varieties,The role of natural world to the human role.

Andrew Jefford's wine course is a very instructional book for wine novices such as myself. I shall feel much more confident next time I go and buy some wine at a restaurant or on holiday. The book has lovely photographs and the final section of the book on 'journeys' just makes you want to pack a suitcase and go off travelling to enjoy some wonderful wine.

I was back from Tuscany with an italian wine compact book, "Vini" by "Guide Compact De Agostini" and I got so much involved in wines thanks to this simple book that wanted to select a few more wine books. I was very attracted by the nice reviews of this book but I must say I am very disappointed. There are a lot of nice pictures and pictoresque desciption about how to taste and select wine, about several fundamental vinegrapes and many hints regarding how to drink and to match with food, but eventually I cannot say I am able to remember if Chardonney is smelling more peach than Cabernet or Pinot Noir. The history of the wine as well as wine region or wine qualities is summarized too much and depicted like a sort of philosophical metaphora of understanding. That I did not get, I am sorry.

Easy to Read 13 July 2010
By Anthony Wong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am running a wine business. It is important for me to explain the knowledge behind the wines to my customer. Andrew Jefford's Wine Course gives simple and easy-to-read wine knowledge with lots of colourful picture.

When I market my wines to my customers, I can easily explain the wine knowledge behind to my customers by presentation this book. The wine knowledge behind can be easily understood by my customers because it summerizes all the details in a simple and organised manner. The beautiful pictures are very attractive to my customers, too.

In this book, the knowldge is "just enough and appropriate". I mean that the knowldeg is "not too much" and "not too less". It is "appropriated".
