From the bestselling authors of Wine For Dummies, a different way
to choose and enjoy wine
Because the choices in a wine store or on a wine list can seem
limitless or intimidating, wine drinkers often stick with what they
know, such as Merlot, or go with the choice made by a wine critic
or a waiter. This appealingly straightforward and unintimidating
guide will help wine drinkers discover what they like and make
informed choices. The authors identify 12 wine styles, or taste
categories, including four for red wine and four for white wine.
For each style, the authors detail how it tastes, where it comes
from, grape varieties that are common for the style, and a few
recommended wines. The style "Soft, Fruity Red Wines," for
instance, includes U.S. Merlots, Beaujolais, Burgundies and other
Pinot Noirs, and southern Italian reds, among other wines. Complete
with tips on pairing wine with food and a pull-out wine wheel to
help readers remember the styles, this is the refreshingly
different book wine drinkers have been waiting for.
