The subject of excellent reviews when it was first published in late 2005, this is a serious text that covers the fundamentals of wine appreciation in a clear, straight-forward style, from the essential aspects of viticulture, winemaking, styles of wine, defects and flaws, sensory analysis, and grape varietal characteristics to wine buying, storage, and serving. The result of 10 years of research by the founder of Sweden’s celebrated Malmö Wine Academy, this book stands out due to its innovative, 100-point grading system. The author also gives a thorough overview of international wine markets, pricing, and quality and how these factors affect each other. Unique graphs that show the relationship between the wine’s score and its price in the U.S. and European markets are also included.
