One aspect of this book that I found particularly interesting is wines that have become better known as of late because of wine growing areas that have fairly recently sprung up outside of Europe. For example, Zinfandel wines have become more popular over the years mostly because of the varieties grown in California.
This is an entertaining book that includes a number of amusing insights--some of which deal with which wines have become "fashionable." In this case the author provides some insight on one of the inside joke in the movie adventures of the wine connoisseurs in Sideways. He discusses the scene where Paul Giamatti's character refuses to drink Merlots. Like this character in Sideways, the author considers Merlot to be over-hyped!
The author also makes on few comments for cooking with wine. One observation is that Marsala serves as a good base for French onion soup.
