Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Kevin Zraly's Windows on the World Complete Wine Course certainly passes the palate test: Over the past quarter century, this celebrated vineyard tutorial has earned a reputation as the bestselling and most reliable wine course on the market. But apparently superb review endorsements, not to mention three million copies sold, aren't enough for workaholic Zraly. The 29th edition of this classic contains refreshed and new features, including a "Best of the Best" section with links to 20 smartphone tags and an audio pronunciation guide and a updated region-by-region vintages, labels, statistics, and more. A standard setter back even better.
