A concise and in-depth guide to sparkling wines from all around the globe. Andreas Kjörling's updated volume offers an extensive overview of the finest universal sparkling wines, ranging from products of the highest quality to those with a more affordable price. A short introduction provides the reader with helpful information regarding the tasting and serving of sparkling wine. The sparkling wines are then listed by country. Products from the renowned European countries such as France, Germany, Italy and Spain or dark horses from lesser known sparkling producers, such as Brazil and Chile, bring the reader on a bubbly tour of the world. Every sparkling wine is presented with author's notes about the color, aroma and taste of the wine, followed by the detailed production process. Additional details are provided by the author, with, for example, suggestions as to which wines taste best with certain food. The price (ranging from one to five dots), origin, producer and grape are listed in a neat and compact way too, which makes it even easier to choose the appropriate wine for each and every occation.
