Overview

One of the world's greatest wine writers has given us a completely revised and updated edition of his authoritative and vastly informative bestselling A-Z guide to the world of wine. Bursting with information, the New Encylopedia of Wine includes 1,588 entries covering the world's leading wines, wine regions, wine producers, and grapes, and is sumptuously illustrated with more than 600 color photographs, maps, wine labels, and other illustrations. As easy to use for the beginner as it is informative for the expert, the New Encylopedia is organized alphabetically rather than by region, allowing the wine lover to find any wine, region, producer, or grape with ease. Other sections include introductions to the major wine-producing countries of the world; practical advice on storing and serving wine, including classic wine matches; and a glossary of wine-making techniques and terms-all covered in straightforward, simple language.

Joe Czerwinski
Clarke's style provides an easy read: Sharp without being sarcastic, witty without being flippant, he communicates well with novice and knowledgeable wine enthusiasts alike.

I've about a dozen assorted wine books, but became interested in Oz Clarke because of his outstanding CD 'Wine Guide' in my computer that I refer to so often. This is both a beautiful book and a great source of helpful, easy-to-understand information. Valuable for wine buffs of all levels.
