The enormous variety of wines available today can be overwhelming, even for an experienced buyer. Anyone who walks into a wine store is immediately confronted with rows and rows of shelves filled with a myriad of choices. Where do you start when all you want is a quality wine at a reasonable price to accompany dinner? Jancis Robinson can make anyone an expert, or at least a savvy shopper, in no time.

In this comprehensive guide to the world's wine-producing countries, she captures the flavor of each region's wines and presents her personal recommendations on the best names from around the world, with thirty-two entirely new pages covering the latest developments in South America, in South Africa and Eastern Europe. Robinson also describes the distinctive characteristics of hundreds of different grape varieties and studies the traditional and innovative methods employed in creating great wines. A fully updated vintage guide makes selection even easier.

Jancis Robinson's wine course covers how to taste and store wine, what to serve at home for special occasions, and how to order the best value on a restaurant's wine list. Full of infectious enthusiasm and a wealth of personal advice, this book will soon have you reaching for the corkscrew.
