Very handy wine guide. Shipped on time and quality product - covers all the major wine regions and lots of wines by year. Tells you which ones to drink early, and which ones will be better to save so they'll be even better aged. Plus it gives you a reason to try a few new wines...

This is a great buy for any wine lover. If you care about your wine, if you are curious to try something new, and you would like to know what vintages are known to have yielded great harvest, this is the guide for you. I use this book to check out everything beginning with terminology and different wine varietals and ending with a tiny section on what type of wine one can experiment with if he or she likes a certain type of wine. "If you like a Chablis....try...." A curious mind will love that section! It is easy to use guide and it encompasses maps as well, which are extremely useful. Also, even a less known producer is likely to be mentioned in this book/guide, so if you bought a bottle of a garage like Bordeaux, you are likely to have a few words about the producer and its wine quality. Truly great.

I have been using Johnson's Pocket Wine Book for years; I never fail to learn something useful about a wine, no matter how obscure. And it stays useful for several years after publication.

The only issue I have with this book is that it always put me into a mood for glass of wine. Also it is not very comfortable to search in Kindle edition. But this book is a must for any wine lover wanting to be real connoisseur.
