On Wine: A Master Sommelier and Master of Wine Tells Allby Doug Frost, Robert Mondavi
On Wine, written by Master Sommelier and Master of Wine Doug Frost-one of three people in the world with these credentials-combines an authoritative, entertaining, down-to-earth discussion of wine for what it is-a drink to be enjoyed-with stunning four-color photography, illustrations, and maps. Frost's uncanny ability to articulate the many facets of enjoying wine simply and accurately makes this an excellent reference for novices who want to better educate themselves on the subject and for more experienced oenophiles who wish to hone their knowledge.
Topics covered here include: the history of wine, including winemaking yesterday and today; understanding varietals, with an in-depth discussion of the most important ones, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah, and a guide to the others; how wine is made, with information on climate, barrels, and fortification; a survey of the world's wine-producing regions and their wines; understanding labels; pairing wines with food; an extensive listing of Frost's choice of the best wine producers in every major wine-making region worldwide; and an extensive glossary of "winespeak."
With a foreword by Robert Mondavi, this beautiful illustrated book is essential reading for every wine lover.
