The Complete Wine Encyclopedia tells the story of the extraordinary substance--its origins, its manufacture, and its varieties. Included are sections on wines from every region of the world, from the exotic wines of the Middle East to the classics of the French wine country and the bold newcomers from California. With over 800 exquisite color photographs that inspire the palate, this sumptuous volume is a must for anyone interested in culture, food and drink.
