I am not normally a Richard & Judy fan, nor do I know what has happened to the Richard & Judy Wine Club, however this book was really excellent. It is an easy and fun read but it is also very informative. The book covers the Old and New World wines, specific growers, all major grape varieties and has advice on tasting, serving, storing, cellaring, food-matching and much more. This book is a brilliant overview of the wine world and an excellent way-in for a beginner. It is also written by some of the most well-known and best wine-writers/wine-makers.
This guide was simple, easy to read and not at all pretentious. For a novice like myself this guide will make selecting bottles for our family christmas party a pleasure rather than a headache inducing chore! Cheers Richard & Judy!
