Vines, Grapes and Wines: the Wine Drinker's Guide to Grape Varieties

£7.99

Product description

The single most interesting factor in shaping the flavour of a wine is the grape variety it is made from. It is the key to appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of every wine we drink.

Here for the first time is a book that illuminates the wine world from this viewpoint. Each grape variety the wine enthusiast is likely to encounter is described in this unique new work, which is part atlas, part tasting guide, part gazetteer. The enthralling gamut of wine flavours is at last disentangled and delineated - by grape variety. Vines, Grapes and Wines shows exactly how to recognize the taste of a given grape and then rediscover it, subtly changed by climate, soil, and human hand, in other wines the world over.

Pages are in excellent condition with few signs of wear to edges and cover. Nearly fine condition.
