Description: Witty and accessible, Drinkology: WINE begins with a basic wine vocabulary. To explain how wine is made, Waller then takes you on a visit to a working winery. He demystifies wine tasting, showing you how to do it just like a pro. Chapters on red and white wine grapes and on sparkling wines equip you with fundamental knowledge. And Waller's tour of the wine world is conducted from your local wine shop: the place you are most likely to encounter wine in all its breathtaking - sometimes intimidating - variety. Stylish in its presentation yet assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, Drinkology: WINE is an invaluable resource for the wine neophyte and an entertaining refresher course for the more experienced oenophile.
