Overview

In this handsomely illustrated volume, expert Phillip Hills presents an accessible, jargon–free guide to tasting, understanding, and appreciating wine.

There is an undoubted social cachet in being able to “appreciate” a good wine, but it shouldn’t be viewed as a code that only the elite can crack. It is truly a pleasure open to all. In Appreciating Wine, Phillip Hills offers detailed, structured tutelage to anyone interested in developing his or her palate. Appreciation, however, is more than mere enjoyment; it requires knowledge and evaluation. To that end, this witty, informative guide will help readers understand exactly why they taste what they do and so be able to make educated judgments about the wine they are drinking. Everything one needs to know about appreciating wine, technically and culturally, is here, making it the perfect companion for all aspiring wine buffs. Phillip Hills writes widely on whisky and wine; his previous book, Appreciating Whisky, was shortlisted for the 2001 Glenfiddich Drinks Book of the Year Award.
