"How To Buy Wine", an easy-to-follow guide written by wine expert Jonathan Ray, will demystify the wine-buying process. Begin by learning what to look out for on wine labels and familiarizing yourself with the different red and white grape varieties. Discover the best way to store wine and which bottles make for good, everyday drinking. Once you've selected your bottle, flip to the invaluable section on food and wine matching to find the best dish to accompany it. For special occasions, it's always tempting to splurge on something sparkling. These days, each country produces their own sparkling variety and at fluctuating prices - Jonathan will guide you through this minefield as well as helping you pick a great rose or fortified wine. For each major wine-producing country in the world, Jonathan gives you the low-down on popular grapes and typical styles, as well as wines and producers to look out for. Clear, concise information on each country's wine-producing strengths (and weaknesses) is included. With this book, you're sure to make the right choice every time.
