Overview

Just tell me what's good!

For those who have a taste for accessible, affordable wines and a distaste for comparative shopping.

With tens of thousands of wines competing for attention, tough economic times, and time-pressed wine drinkers, there has never been a better time to buy popular wines. Good, Better, Best Wines is the first book that focuses exclusively on "big brands," breaking them down to good, better and best, and by price. Each taste-tested wine is accompanied by a photo of the bottle, for ease of identification, as well as tasting notes, food matches, trade secrets, and more. Wine lovers will save the time they'd be comparing to have more time for tasting. Coverage includes:

•White wines-blends, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio/ Gris, Fume/Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and others

•Red wines-blends, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah/Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and others

•Rosés and sparkling wines

•The basics on buying wines, from vintages to screwcaps, and storing, serving, and tasting wine

What People are Saying About This

Andrew Jefford
They're big, they're out there, but they're not all the same. This book cuts a sure course through the ocean of popular wines. Carolyn's enthusiasm and stylistic panache tells you what you need to know — and fast. (Andrew Jefford, columnist for Decanter and The World of Fine Wine Magazine)
Richard Best
It's about time someone of Carolyn's' calibre stepped forward to champion these humble yet satisfying wines. The first paragraph alone is worth the price of admission. (Richard Best, The Frugal Oenophile)
Natalie MacLean
Finally, a wine book for the rest of us! Carolyn Hammond sniffs and swirls her way through the liquor store so that you don't have to. The genius of her approach is that she recognizes we want tasty wines that are reasonably priced. Brava Carolyn! (Natalie MacLean, author of Red, White and Drunk All Over and editor of www.nataliemaclean.com)
Billy Munnelly
We're in an era when cheap wine can be very good and Good Better Best Wines helps you get the best. Innovative concept with tons of good stuff to buy and enjoy. My kind of wine book. (Billy Munnelly, Author, Billy's Best Bottles)
Lynne Webb
This book is a fabulous resource. It really filled a niche that needed to be addressed. (Lynne Webb, Publisher, Mygourmetconnection.com)
