    DescriptionDon't know your amontillado from your amoroso? Can't say who declared cabernet sauvignon the only variety to be tolerated in heaven? Can't list the movers and shakers in the Australian wine landscape today? Never fear, James Halliday, Australia's foremost wine writer, has compiled all the answers. The Australian Wine Encyclopedia is the definitive guide to all things wine in Australia, from someone who has immersed himself in the topic his whole life. From Abbey Creek Vineyard all the way to zinfandel, James gives detailed explanations of regions, personalities, grape varieties, winemaking processes and terms used in discussing wines. Written with his trademark vigour and contagious curiosity about what makes wine tick, The Australian Wine Enclycopedia is a must for all lovers of wine, from newcomers to experts.

    Author Information
    Respected wine critic and vigneron James Halliday has a career that spans over forty years, but he is most widely known for his witty and informative writing about wine. As one of the founders of Brokenwood in the Lower Hunter Valley, and thereafter founder of Coldstream Hills in the Yarra Valley, James is an unmatched authority on every aspect of the wine industry, from the planting and pruning of vines through to the creation and marketing of the finished product. His winemaking has led him to sojourns in Bordeaux and Burgundy, and he is constantly in demand as a wine judge in Australia and overseas.
