For all wine nuts or students of the grape, this pocket book is indispensable. For amateurs it will provide hours of browsing pleasure and enhance immeasurably the knowledge of wine that can be gained from reading much weightier books. Also a useful way to settle arguments with badly trained sommeliers and over-confident dinner guests !
A must for any serious wine lover's library.

I got this book in the hope it would help me visually identify some vines I have inherited, but it doesn't. Nonetheless, it provides plenty of other information which I found helpful, but is not fully up to date, as there are some recent vines of which there is no mention.
