This full-color book opens with an introduction to wine--including what it is, how it's made, and the various types of grapes and wines available--and then clearly shows the reader how to read a wine label and how to taste wine. The author guides the reader through a wine list and how order wine in a restaurant and explains how to buy wine, serve wine at home, and perfectly pair it with different types of food. From there, the reader is taken on a tour of the world's wines, region by region, from Europe, to the southern hemisphere, to North and South America.
