    DescriptionThis highly opinionated, addictively browsable compilation of 1,001 "must try" wines offers the most enjoyable drinking experience for novice and connoisseur alike. Included in the list are classics as well as groundbreaking new up-and-comers from all major regions of the world. Divided into four sections: red, white, sparkling, and fortified wines. The informed selections offer a complete history of the most famous vintages as well as introducing the daring new blends and varietals that are exciting the cognoscenti. Special attention is paid to the world's classic wine regions like Napa, Chianti, Barolo, Bordeaux, and Burgundy, but the book also takes very seriously recently established areas like Rioja or Australia's Barossa Valley. Also, the book examines emerging regions just finding their place on the oenological map, like Argentina's Mendoza, which can provide enormous pleasure at a reasonable price. Each entry comes with an authoritative yet opinionated description of its origin, history, and character as well as anecdotes about the winemakers, the vineyard and the region. This book will immediately appeal to wine fans everywhere and will be a perfect gift item.

    Review quote
    "With "1001 Wines," you'll learn about, and hope for, a taste of some of the world's most sought-after wines." "San Francisco Chronicle ""But this massive tome goes way beyond the vapid approach of so many such works, with tasty tidbits and inside information on a masterfully chosen list." "The Star Tribune ""The list is not of the greatest wines or of authors' favorites; instead, it includes intriguing, historical, and influential wines. All of them can be purchased, although some are rare and expensive." "Library Journal"
