New York star chef Tom Colicchio said it best: The Food & Wine Magazine’s Wine Guide is “like having a sommelier with you” every time you choose a wine. And the new 2008 edition is the best yet! Brought to you by America’s most trusted and popular publication on the pleasures of the table, this authoritative book is now even more user-friendly than before. It features two major sections: Old World and New World, with wine-producing countries organized alphabetically in each. New York wine expert Jamal A. Rayyis rates nearly 1,500 wines from all the world’s major wine-producing regions, spanning the traditional giants—California, France, and Italy—to the exciting up-and-coming names in South America, Australia, Portugal, and Eastern Europe. Written with a minimum of “wine speak,” Rayyis’s ratings are concise, clear, and include all price ranges, with an emphasis on wines that offer the best value for the dollar. In addition, the 2008 version is loaded with special features, including an invaluable Food & Wine Pairing Chart, a Bargain Wine Finder, and a Wine Tasting Guide.
