#6 Kevin Zraly's Complete Wine Course

by Kevin Zraly

So you want to learn about wine? Then take a course from the master. No one has taught so many people, so well, and over such a long period of time (sorry Kevin) than Kevin Zraly. His course has been honed over many years and is the same course work he uses to teach his renowned Window on the World wine class. Easy to read, easy to understand and broken down into convenient lessons that make sense, this book is simply the best way to learn about wine!

This is Kevin's 40th year in the wine business, and to celebrate, he has updated all the material on vineyards in Austria, Hungary, Greece, New Zealand, South Africa, Chile, and Argentina. Plus, he completely refreshed the tasting section with flavor profiles that also discuss winemaking, created a new Best of the Best chapter, and included more than 20 smart phone tags throughout the book that link to videos of Kevin talking about wine. As always, the book offers the chapters: Wine Basics, Tasting Wine, Matching Wine and Food, Frequently Asked Questions About Wine, and a Selected Glossary. Zraly goes region by region, with the wines organized from simple to complex, allowing readers who follow Kevin's order to experience the finest wines and a wide diversity of tastes, styles, regions, and countries.

    Tim Fenton's a man after my own heart! I love telling little stories about wines I sell...about my trip to that vineyard, how a celebrity had a runner purchase a particular wine from me....to me, it helps make wine less daunting and more personalized! That book's going on my wish list!!!

  • You know what's really good?

    Giving someone a book on, for example, port - and also giving them the wine it describes!

    Nothing like drinking a wine while you're reading about it.

    (Or am I simply posting my own Xmas wishlist...? Is that you, Mrs K?)
