It is good to know which wines to drink, but as Zachary Sussman suggests, it is important to know why you should drink them. Beginning with foundational information about how wine is made, how to taste it, and how to understand terroir, this tutorial ranges from old world regions like France, Italy, Spain, and Germany to new world wines from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and Chile. You'll find user-friendly "just the highlights" notes for each region, as well as recommendations for producers and particular bottles to seek out. Diving deep into what makes each region essential and unique, this illustrated guide gives new wine drinkers and enthusiasts alike an inside track on modern wine culture.
