Praise for previous editions . . .
"Wine Lover's Companion packs a tremendous amount of useful, intriguing information about wine. This book is a joy to use--information is what it is all about."
--Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator
"Highly recommended! Wine Lover's Companion
has precise and informative definitions for thousands of wine terms. This book is top notch and the pronunciation guide for every entry fills a void in recent wine literature."
--Bob Foster, California Grapevine
"This terrific book is likely to prove curiously addictive. A font of knowledge--literally thousands of answers--whether you're a beginner, collector, or just a compulsive reader." --San Francisco Chronicle
". . . the best new wine book in more than a decade."
--Jurgen Gothe, Vancouver Sun
". . . an invaluable, user-friendly reference. I learned something from the very first page I turned to, and keep learning as I keep turning."
--William Rice, Food and Wine Columnist, Chicago Tribune Includes appendices, charts, glossary, and bibliography
