Unlike other wine books, Oz Clarke's Introducing Wine starts off with a guide to choosing the taste of the wine you want. In describing the flavors offered by wine in all its variety, Clarke provides a summation of the varieties and shadings of taste that are available, and then directs you to the grapes, regions, and producers that will give you what you want. Everything flows, so to speak, from taste.
Comprehensive in its summation of everything you'll need to know about tasting, serving, and storing wine, Introducing Wine ends with a guided tour of the shelves of a wine shop. Here you'll learn how to find the taste you are looking for in the most practical and useful way. Vividly illustrated throughout, Introducing Wine is an indispensable companion for beginners as well as anyone who wants to brush up on the world of wine. Direct, unpretentious, and easy to consult, Introducing Wine is the best basic primer on the market, from a supremely knowledgeable and engaging writer.
