Product Description


As a reference book for those with an eye to improving their wine knowledge it's pretty damn good. -- Wine magazine

‘If you take the wine you drink at all seriously, this information-packed book will rapidly become indispensable.’ -- Yorkshire Evening Post

From the Back Cover

As easy to use for the beginner as it is informative for the expert, Oz Clarke’s Encyclopedia of Wine is organised alphabetically rather than by region, allowing the wine lover to find any wine, region, producer, or grape variety with ease

More than 1,600 entries

In-depth profiles of the world’s major wine producers – the well known
as well as the rising stars – including recommended wines and vintages

37 special regional features on the world’s leading wine-producing
regions, plus features on 15 major wine-producing countries of the world, their classification systems, local grape varieties, and wine-making practices

When to drink different wines; serving and tasting; identifying
wine styles; matching food and wine

A comprehensive Glossary of wine-making terms and techniques
Nearly 700 colour photographs, maps, labels and vintage charts

Verified Purchase
I am extremely happy with this book by Oz Clarke . It is one of the most comprehensive tomes I have come across . It is very well presented , clear , concise and beautifully illustrated . It is a very pleasant read and I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in wines . However , I am sure that most people not initially interested would find it a joy to read and induce them to be interested in wines and indulge themselves .
