Product Overview

Select, serve, and enjoy wine like a pro! The more you know about anything, the more enjoyable it can be. That is certainly true of wine--and Brian Smith, a leading wine educator at the Culinary Institute of America, is the perfect guide to this sometimes intimidating subject. "If you want to make wine complicated, you can," Smith says, "but to select and serve wine effectively, you simply need to know the basics." He''s included all of those basics in this lively and comprehensive guide to the world of wine.

You''ll learn: All about the various wine style, grape types, and wine regions How to pair wines with specific foods How to decipher wine labels like an expert How to order, taste, and decant wine with confidence And much more!

Detailed maps and color photos of vineyards, bottles, labels, and more make this book as inspiring as it is useful, and the perfect addition to the library of any wine-lover from the novice to the seasoned connoisseur.
