Well-illustrated in color, with maps of each region, this encyclopedia contains a wealth of information on wine. An introductory section includes descriptions of how wine is made, factors affecting taste and quality, a discourse on oak, and how wine should be stored and drunk. The remainder of the volume contains detailed entries by region, with the lion's share devoted to France, though the wine of all other countries are competently discussed. History, climate, soil, vintages, special factors affecting taste and quality are discussed, followed by a listing of each appellation with a rating and list of its wines. Annotation c.
