Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
In his seventh book on wine, photographer O'Rear (Wine Country) takes readers on a yearlong journey through ten wine regions across five continents, lovingly detailing every step of wine production from the vine to the glass in thematic chapters. The more than 225 lush color images range from gorgeous closeups of grape varietals to portraits of seasoned pickers to vast landscapes of vineyards. In the accompanying text, Furer, a sommelier and certified wine educator, provides a history of wine production with innovations made by current vintners, deftly mixing facts and terminology while engaging readers. A chapter is dedicated to each step of the winemaking process, comparing and contrasting methods from the Old World (Europe) to the New World (Australia and the Americas). This visual record of international wine regions belongs in public libraries with large wine or photography collections. More instructional works include The Oxford Companion to Wine (2d ed.), edited by Jancis Robinson, Kevin Zraly's Windows on the World's Complete Wine Course, and Mark Oldman's Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine.-Kimberly Bartosz, Univ. of Wisconsin-Parkside, Kenosha Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
