Overview

With hundreds—make that thousands—of different winegrapes currently available on store shelves, it's impossible for the average wine buyer to make sense of it all. There are the standards: Cabernet, Chardonnay, Shiraz, but what if you want a change? This Winegrape Primer is conveniently pocket-sized and covers nearly three hundred grapes and wine styles. Each entry includes a short profile of the grape, its history, its sensory characteristics, plus food matching suggestions. The Primer also includes extensive cross-references plus a simplified guide to Old World wine regions. Given today’s fast pace of life, general state of information overload, and global wine market, this book is just the thing to help you quickly look up a grape or wine, even while shopping for wine.
