Abstract:

"This truly international wine reference spans the globe. It is the only single volume that maps and presents exhaustive information on every wine-growing area, from the Old World to the New-including emerging regions and producers of note." "Stevenson analyzes the factors affecting the taste and quality of each region's wines before assessing its appellations, the individual wine producers, and, of course, the wines themselves. A star-rating system identifies the finest producers and highlights those offering the best value, while an "author's choice" chart at the end of each section lists the very best wines." "The most comprehensive illustrated wine guide ever produced, The Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia is an unrivaled source of information for all lovers of wine-whether you are a novice wanting to explore the pleasures of wine, a wine enthusiast looking for inspiration, or an expert sommelier. Book jacket."--Jacket.
