Know-It-All Wine demystifies the subject, decanting the knowledge you need in palatable sips. Compiled by wine experts, it’s organized in a sequence of well-thought-out chapters, taking you from terroir to the technicalities of winemaking, introducing you to the important grapes and iconic regions, offering an overview of the business of wine and how it works, and concluding with a section on the enjoyment of wine.
