Jancis Robinson's Wine Course
Aiming to help readers to find choosing wines an easier and enjoyable activity, this book is divided into four sections: winemaking and handling wine; how wine is made; the major grape varieties; and the world of wine. It covers topics such as tasting, choosing wine to suit specific occasions, buying, vintage wines, grape varieties and their growing regions, the vineyard calendar, fermenting and transporting wine, and how wines are made from a range of individual grape varieties.
