"Kevin Zraly is the finest wine educator I have known.” —Robert Parker

No one matches Kevin Zraly for teaching the novice or giving experts the most current information about wine. Now, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Zraly's definitive work, the world's bestselling guide to wine receives a complete update. As always, Zraly deftly takes the mystery out of wine, recommending hundreds of new wines (all under $30!) and providing the latest information on vintage wines. But this thoroughly redesigned edition also presents a beautiful tribute to the renowned restaurant, Windows on the World, where Zraly's course began in 1976 and continued until September 11, 2001. Thanks to user-friendly smartphone tags throughout, there are videos to enlighten key points and audio guides to help you correctly pronounce 1,300 wine names and terms.
