Renowned wine expert Oz Clarke uses his trademark wit and irreverent style to explain the basics of wine appreciation and show you how to get more out of your bottle.
Have you ever gone into a wine store or looked over the wine list at your favorite restaurant or bar only to panic over which one to choose? Oz Clarke is here to help with a simple, to-the-point guide that’s divided into short, easy-to-read topics. It covers basics (wine at a glance, good grape guide, wine styles, from grape to glass, and wine-growing countries); practical stuff (what the label tells you, the canny wine buyer, an essential kit, serving and keeping wine); and becoming a wine geek (tasting wine, starting your own collection, finding out more, and wine names). Oz leads you by the hand through the world of fascinating flavors so you can find exactly the wine you’ll enjoy most.
