An authoritative and inspirational winetasting course, from one of the world’s leading wine educators.

‘Explains the mechanics of taste and tasting better than any book I’ve seen.’ – Richard Ehrlich, Independent on Sunday

Learn how to taste wine, with one of the world’s leading wine educators.

This book offers a particularly clear and precise means of teaching yourself how to taste and how to get more out of your wine, whatever your level. All the major grape varieties are explored, and their key characteristics in different regions. Ten practical tastings then cover core tasting techniques. Do you want to explore Dry Whites, for example, looking at ‘Old World’ versus ‘New World’ Sauvignon Blancs? Or investigate ‘terroir’ in a range of Bordeaux wines? Additional information on subjects such as Wines and Age and the impact of climate change complete the picture, making this book a powerful tool for understanding and appreciating wine at all levels.
