Everything Wine Book(Everything Series) by Danny May, Andy Sharpe
It used to be that the world of wine was a closed door to all except for the cultural elite. Well, not any more! The Everything Wine Book is the perfect primer for anyone with even the slightest interest in wine, whether you are planning to spend $5 a bottle or (heaven forbid) $50.
This reader-friendly, informative book covers everything you need to know to order the best wines available, from all over the world. You'll quickly master how to differentiate the different categories or types of wine, and all of the grape varietals. Learn how to pair great foods with great wines, from hamburgers to the classiest French cuisine. You'll also find comprehensive information on champagnes and fortified wines (including port, sherry, and brandy), as well as lots of fun facts about bottles, vintages, the different wine-making processes, cocktails made with wine, the best wine to serve at parties, and much, much more.
