Kevin Zraly's incomparable course ("One of the best start-from-scratch wine books ever written."-- Frank Prial, The New York Times ) is still America's top-selling guide to wine. In this year's revised edition, Zraly shares some of the authoritative knowledge on buying wine that he's acquired over the last 30 years: this new, exclusive, and invaluable "How to Buy Wine" section covers retailers, auctions, Internet sites, and just about anywhere a bottle can be purchased. What stays constant is Zraly's inimitable, irreverent style. He answers every question about wine; offers the most up-to-date recommendations; takes you on a country-by-country, region-by-region ratings tour of the latest vintages; and starts you on your way to becoming a wine connoisseur. Abundant full-color labels and maps--some brand new--complete the enticing picture. More current, more informative, more concise and precise than ever, this remains the wine guide against which all others are judged.

This is an excellent book on everything wine. It appears daunting at over 350 pages, but is very readable. Organized by regions, each section focusses on the grapes, the wines, the different styles, as well as top producers. One can glean as little or as much information as personally relevant. Throughout the book, sidebar comments include interesting or pertinent facts about wine and wine fundamentals. This is perhaps the best textbook for a comprehensive overview and in-depth study on wines currently available.
