With hundreds of different winegrapes available on store shelves, it can be hard for the wine buyer to make sense of it all. There are the standards -- Chardonnay, Cabernet, Shiraz, etc. -- but what if you want a change? What if you want to discover more of the fabulous variety of wines that have satisified palates for more than two millenia?
The Winegrape Primer covers 250 grapes and wine styles. Each entry includes a short profile of the grape, its history, its sensory characteristics, and a few food matching suggestions. The Primer also includes extensive cross-references plus a simplified guide to Old World wine regions.
The Winegrape Primer is just the thing to help you quickly look up a grape or wine, even while shopping for wine.
• 250 grapes and wines covered, from Airen to Zweigeltrebe, in non-technical language
• Succinct intros to grapes, viticulture and wine classifications
• Food matching suggestions for each grape or wine style
• Overview of Old World wine regions and quick guide to naming conventions
• Glossary of Oenological Terms
• Handy pocket size
