Beautiful countryside, delicious fruit, tradition and the art of the winemaker are all brought together in a bottle of wine. Understanding the nuances that derive from the style of wine-making, choice of grape varieties, impact of growing conditions, and a wine's culture of origin, add to the overall enjoyment of a wine. The handy and accessible Wine Encyclopedia features 100 wine-growing regions, from the French jewels of Bordeaux and Champagne to the rising stars like Argentina's Mendoza and the Australian Coonawarra region. The world's best known producers, as well as the up-and-coming estates are included, with detailed information on fruit varieties, vineyard conditions, the winemakers and individual wine styles. Eight thousand individual wines are listed by region with descriptions of style, flavor, bouquet, price range and suggested compatible food choices. More than 100 color maps detail wine-making regions.
