Overview

Wine is among the most popular drinks in the world. 17 billion bottles of wine are bottled each year-about 3 bottles for every person on earth. 190 million American adults consume an average of 10 bottles of wine per person. 30 million Americans are categorized as regular wine drinkers. (Rural Migration News). With wine pervasive in world and North American culture, correct and up-to-date knowledge of wine is a valuable life skill. Better knowledge of wine will allow consumers to purchase and enjoy their wine in the most pleasing light. Maran Illustrated Wine is a valuable resource to a wide range of readers-from individuals selecting a wine for a quiet evening at home to those wanting to impress their colleagues with the perfect wine to go with a business dinner. Instead of paragraph after paragraph of dry text, Maran Illustrated Wine uses clear, concise points to help the reader fully understand the complexities of wine. The full-color photographs complement the text to help walk the reader through each topic from beginning to end. Thorough introductions and useful tips provide additional information and advice to help enhance the readers' overall wine experience. Maran Illustrated Wine costs less than one moderately priced bottle of wine, and will be a permanent resource that can be accessed at any time. Maran Illustrated Wine is the perfect companion book to the best-selling book, Maran Illustrated Bartending.
