The only book that demystifies wine without destroying its magic.

The 402 wine names most often found on bottle labels in stores and on restaurant wine lists in the United States and Canada are one of the big features of this book. The "Key" - flagged by a gray tint block down the right-hand margin - tells each wine's colour; whether it's dry or sweet, soft or spicy or sparkling; whether it is named for a grape; its approximate alcoholic strength; how its name is pronounced; what country it comes from.

Wines from every country in the world whose products are available in the United States are mentioned. This book does not rank individual wines - it just tells you how to get the best for your money, and how to know a good wine from a bad one.
