From the Publisher

The first authoritative, illustrated reference book on the world''s great wine grapes in nearly twenty years.

Almost all wine lovers understand that the grape variety or blend in a wine is the most influential factor in a wine''s taste. In Oz Clarke''s Encyclopedia of Grapes Clarke explains and illuminates these qualities with concise and vivid descriptions of the 350 major grape varieties of the world, in an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format.

Special features on the classic varieties are exquisitely illustrated with original paintings, and double-page spreads on other major grapes describe the varieties, their history, geography, character, and cultural context. The transformation of grapes into wine is fully detailed and illustrated with charts that provide essential information on which grapes are allowed in each wine. The book concludes with a glossary of technical terms, a comprehensive index of grape names and their synonyms, and a general index.

With its luscious artwork, evocative text, and practical information, Oz Clarke''s Encyclopedia of Grapes makes a uniquely attractive and useful gift-a delight to browse and a mine of interesting information.
