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.

Format: Paperback
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
