An accessible and jargon-free guide to tasting, understanding and appreciating wine. There is an undoubted social cachet in being able to appreciate a good wine. But wine shouldn't be viewed as a code given only to an elite to crack. It is a delicious pleasure open to all and in Appreciating Wine, everyone, whatever their expertise, is offered detailed, structured tuition on developing their palates for the sensational liquid. Appreciation, however, is more than mere enjoyment; it requires knowledge and evaluation and the aim of this informative book is to let you understand exactly why you taste what you do and so be able to make informed judgements about what you are drinking. Phillip Hills guides you through the whole tasting process. You will learn about the different types of grapes, the different growing conditions, regional variations and what each of the stages of the production process brings to the final product.
