Editorial Reviews

Written by the greatest wine authority of his day, and first published in 1964, The Frank Schoonmaker Encyclopedia has long been acclaimed as one of the very best wine books available. The New York Times immediately called it "the finest quick reference book in the literature of wine." Because no other wine book provides the reader with as much information in so concise a form, a revised version has been long awaited. Despite all the wine books that have appeared in the past decade, The New Frank Schoonmaker Encyclopedia of Wine is still unique in that its self-contained alphabetical entries make it easier to use than any other encyclopedia on the market. This book has no indexyou simply turn to the entry you want and find exactly the information you need. Completely revised by one of today's top wine experts, the Bespaloff edition takes into consideration the increased interest in the wines of California, Italy, and Australia. The material on such traditional topics as port and champagne has also been expanded considerably. Beautifully designed in two colors, it features twenty-three maps drawn especially for this edition, and contains more than five hundred new entries including such varied topics as Amador, calories, crâ classé, FrenchAmerican hybrids, late harvest, Martha's Vineyard, vintage port, and "Zip Code wines." The New Frank Schoonmaker Encyclopedia of Wine is the foundation of any wine library. It is the one book any wine lover will ever need. Even if you own and use other wine encyclopedias, the elegant accessibility of this book will induce you to eventually rely on it and no other.

If you want to know anything & everything about wine including history, geographic locations, & pronunciation, this book is for you. Some vintages are covered within a 7 to 8 year spread. Impress any sommelier buy ordering your dinner wine by the name rather than the number. Names are spelled phonetically making pronunciation much easier. Very interesting anecdotal history also. Great reading about a great subject.
