Celebrating 20 years of wine mastery...

The world's finest wine book gets a complete redesign for its 20th birthday. Thirty-two pages of brand new material, enhanced color, and even more cartoons grace this Anniversary Edition, which will thrill wine lovers once again as they get a taste of Kevin Zraly's unequaled advice. One thing hasn't changed, however: Zraly's inimitable, irreverent style. He answers every question about wine; offers the most up-to-date recommendations; provides advice on buying wine in stores and on the Internet; takes you on a country-by-country, region-by-region ratings tour of the latest vintages; and starts you on your way to becoming a wine connoisseur. Abundant full-color labels and maps complete the enticing picture. More current, more informative, more concise and precise than ever, this remains the wine guide against which all others are judged.
