Wine by Style is a guide to the rapidly expanding and confusing world of wine. It has a unique flavor and style-led approach to appeal to consumers who already know what type of wine they enjoy, but who would like to explore all the wines within each style category, regardless of the wine's country of origin.

Fiona Beckett's introduction explains how the styles and flavors of wine are achieved. Major grape varieties are described and the influence of climate and soil discussed. The essence of winemaking and its effect on flavor is also explained.

Separate chapters then explore each main style of wine - from whites and reds to roses, champagne, sparkling wines and fortified wines. Each chapter sets out the different styles of wine and is followed by a detailed listing of wines in that category, with descriptions of where they come from, the grapes they are made from and what they taste like. A useful key highlights main flavor characteristics and the price range of each.

Wine by Style concludes with a practical chapter on how to match wine and food, how to serve and store wine and how to detect when a wine is out of condition. This handy reference will reveal the delights of hundreds of wines, a vast range many are sure to enjoy.
