Peter Forrestal, Editor with 36 Authors
The Monumental Wine Book of the Decade. Never before has a collection of the world's leading wine experts and writers gathered together to produce the one thorough and definitive book on wine. Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers from every corner of the globe worked to provide the most current and comprehensive reference. From Burgundy to Zimbabwe, from Turkmenistan to Uruguay, this encyclopedia covers every aspect of wine from its history to its making and enjoyment.
Each chapter is virtually a book in itself. From the popular wine growing regions of the world; France, Italy, Spain and California to the more arcane: India, China, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Moldova, Romania, Peru - it is all here. All organized in a style where you can quickly reference the region you are seeking.
A "Wine Reference Table" of over 5,000 wines provides you with a brief description, the food compatibility and price range on more wines than any other book. A thorough Glossary enables the reader to decipher common and foreign language wine terminology. A massive index with over 15,000 entries further enables the reader to quickly find the topic.
The quality of the writing is as obvious as the high qualifications of the contributors, verified through the credentials and reputations: Steve Charters, MW on "The World of Wine", James Lawther, MW on Bordeaux, Jasper Morris, MW on Burgundy, Stephen Brook on Germany, Michael Fridjhon on South Africa, Dr. Patrick Farrell, MW on California. Also: Tony Aspler, James Aufenast, Helena Baker, Jeffrey Benson, Jim Budd, Rebecca Chapa, Catherine Fallis, MS, Ken Gargett, Harold Heckle, Brian Jordan, Alex Lidddell, Wink Lorch, Nico Manessis, Sally Marden, Giles MacDoough, Kate McIntyre, Alex Mitchell, Jeremy Oliver, Anthony Peregrine, John Radford, Margaret Rand, Michelle Round, Joanna Simon, Marguerite Thomas, Joelle Thomson, Roger Voss, Dr. Paul White and Simon Woods reads like a current day "who's who" of the top wine journalists!
If you are serious about wine, this is the one book you will need to have on your shelf.
