From the Publisher
The first in-depth guide to sparkling wines of the world from champagne to California, Italy to Australia and beyond. A facinating first section describes the history of sparkling wine and proves beyond any doubt that it was the English rather then the French who first produced a fizzy wine. The main body of the encylopedia is devoted to profiles of the world's sparkling wine produces accompanied by tasting notes, recommendations for drinking and good value for young money. Another section lists the author's personal selection of sparkling wines to drink for the Millennium. Beautifully illustrated and designed with over 600 full color photographs and illustrations, this is the ultimate book for those who love the good things in life and who want to discover the best was to welcome in the new year. Tom Stevenson is the world's leading authority on Champagne. He is the author of 14 books and winner of 21 literary awards, including 13 for his works on Champagne. He has been voted Wine Writer of the Year three times!
