Library Journal - Library JournalThis guidebook, prepared by Andre Gayot (of the Gault Millau "Best of'' series fame) and presented by the American Automobile Association of America, takes the reader on a wine sipper's driving tour of the entire continent, including Canada and Mexico, pointing out both prominent and lesser-known wineries and noting the strengths and weaknesses in their vats and casks. This book's central purpose is not to make one a "connoisseur'' but to guide wine lovers who believe in learning by doing and who don't want to spend a fortune on their mistakes. For the reasonable price, one also gets a mini-education on judging wines; 26 pages of recommendations based on reliability, quality, and price; a glossary; a calendar of wine events; and suggested "food and wine pairings.'' In short, this is an accessible reference guide for anyone interested in discovering great wines without crossing the Atlantic. For wine and travel collections.-- Wendy Miller, Santa Monica P.L., Cal.
