Book Description

7 Sep 1995
Aiming to help readers to find choosing wines an easier and enjoyable activity, this book is divided into four sections: winemaking and handling wine; how wine is made; the major grape varieties; and the world of wine. It covers topics such as tasting, choosing wine to suit specific occasions, buying, vintage wines, grape varieties and their growing regions, the vineyard calendar, fermenting and transporting wine, and how wines are made from a range of individual grape varieties. The final section of the book discusses the specific flavours, characteristics and ethos of the wine-growing regions of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and other countries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, accessible and informative 23 Jan 2004
By y-fly
I'd always been a bit doubtful about 'wine experts' but wanted to learn a bit more about wine, and chose this volume. It's written with a sense of humour and in an easy, accessible style. Importantly, although serious and informative, Jancis Robinson isn't at all pompous and doesn't take herself too seriously. She gives you the tools and guidance needed to improve your understanding and appreciation of wine, but doesn't try to tell you what to think.
An excellent starting point.

Another faultless performance from Jancis Robinson. This is a readable, authoritative and nicely illustrated introduction to wine: highly recommended. The only possible criticism is that common to works of this sort, where space limitations mean that there's just too much compression of detail, and the author ends up trying to cram too much into too little space.

This invaluable book gives a great start to learning about wines. This can be a great book for moving into the wine industry and following up with industry qualifications, or for the enthusiastic amateur. Well written, and clear
