"A comprehensive guide to understanding, choosing and enjoying wine."

This handy reference is packed with practical, up-to-date and easy-to-follow information that will turn even the most clueless consumer into a confident wine enthusiast. The book explains how and where wine is made, what it should taste like, and how to tell the difference between a great but modestly priced wine and an expensive but disappointing one.

Illustrations, sidebars, maps, lists and "did you knows" make Clueless About Wine a pleasure to read. There's also a handy "WineSpeak" glossary and numerous quick-glance charts on pairings.

Here is a sampling of what the book covers: The most basic questions about wine The winemaking process The characteristics of various wine types and regions How to read labels Opening and decanting a bottle, and which glass to use Storing wine and buying for special occasions.

Of value for those with some wine knowledge as well as for neophytes, Clueless About Wine simplifies the mystique of confusing technology and shows how easy and enjoyable it is to choose and enjoy wine with confidence.
