Really useful!, 16 Oct. 2006
I bought this book on a whim while buying a few other things on Amazon. I love the odd glass of wine, but can't say I know much about it beyond what I like and don't like when I taste it. But this book is fantastic - it includes descriptions of all the best wines around, including their prices and advice on where to buy them. The author is really enthusiastic about his subject and isn't at all snobbish. I don't like to spend a lot of money on wine and was pleased to see that Oz's number 1 wine costs less than £10. The bargain basement and £5 sections are the parts I've made most use of - they've helped me find some real bargains over the past few weeks. I don't think I'll be turning into a wine buff anytime soon, but it's a nice feeling when the bottle you bring to a dinner party actually gets drunk with gusto, rather than left on the sideboard!!
