Overview

Finally in paperback, here is the classic tome on wine by world-renowned wine
expert and connoisseur Hugh Johnson. When it was first published nearly twenty
years ago, Wine was universally acclaimed as a suburb guide to the
appreciation and understanding of wine. Today it is still firmly established as
the classic in its field.
Hugh Johnson traces the entire process of wine-making from grape to table,
discussing soil, vintages, shipping, bottling and the selling-the fascinating and
essential background knowledge that enables every wine lover to make the most of
what he is buying, storing and drinking.
The author also takes an entertaining look at the history and lore of wine-making
- How did Dom Perignon discover the secret of making champagne? What role do
American vines play in the history of French wine?
With sixteen pages of vivid, full-color photographs illustrating the story of
wine, up-to-the-minute vintage charts, and Hugh Johnson's clear, enthusiastic
style, Wine remains unchallenged as the finest contemporary essay
on the subject.
