One of the best wine reference books I've ever purchased.

There's not a wine-related word that Oxford doesn't cover in this comprehensive book. A wealth of knowledge for anyone who loves wine.

I would like to start by personally commending the wealth of information, as broad as it is, of the 'Companion'. As a three year training sommelier, I constantly refer to the 'Oxford Companion' as a primary resourse of concrete information. It holds a modest degree of history. Most of the pertinent information that should be easily absorbed to the thirsty for knowledge is very difficult to filter through the presentation. If you have a particular subject of shallow search you'll find this an invaluble resourse for that story of a wine, wine region, or specific 'appelation'. If you're into wine making details, start here!

This book is the wine lovers bible. I highly reccomend it to anyone who enjoys wine.

Robert Joseph's Good Wine Guide 1999 (Dorling Kindersley) is superior to the Oxford Companion as a quick reference..... more diverse referencing and handier size.
