"â?¦ One of my favorite compact reference books."
Laurie Daniel, San Jose Mercury News, December 2003
"At a mere $14.95, it's a steal. â?¦ The sections are not stody textbook like entries, but are well-written, informative and upbeat. It's so enticing that I find myself picking it up, opening it at random, reading and learning. â?¦ In the back of the book is a wide array of indices including a pronunciation guide to winery names and brands. The authors sagely recognize that such guides are essential for new wine buffs who want to get it right. â?¦ For any wine lover, beginner or old-timer, this work is a must. There is a wealth of information presented in a logical user-friendly manner. Highly recommended."

"Know what geropiga is? Neither did I until I saw the entry in this new editionâ?¦ Obscurities like this make this squat book as addictive to flip through as it is useful. â?¦ a great addition to anyone's library, novice through expert."
