From the authors of the acclaimed The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is my go-to book for wine education. It is basically a dictionary, and gives concise information about exactly what you're curious about. If you have a specific question, or run across a topic that you want to understand better, this is the perfect way to access the information.

This publication is, without a doubt, one of the best reference works for any person interested in wine and grape around the world. Whether your interest is informal, or all-consuming, this book will have answers that are complete, well-written, and able to be understood by almost anyone possessing basic reading/writing skills. It is simply a lovely book to page through casually, or as a source for answering a question generated by something you might have read somewhere.
I would like to recommend the Wine Lover's Companion to anybody who likes wine. This book would make a great gift to your wine-lover friend.

I was looking for a wine encyclopedia to load onto my Kindle. I've got lots of wine books on my shelf, but who wants to lug them all over the place? There aren't many wine books around which come in Kindle edition, unfortunately. This one is pretty basic, but fills the bill just fine (for now anyway). When the Oxford Companion comes out in e-book form, I'll buy that too.

I do enjoy having an easy reference when looking for something different without having to buy a bottle that I'm not too crazy about. I hate throwing out wine, and really try hard not to do so.

A great source of definitions if you want to clarify wine jargon you have not been exposed to. This and Windows of the World will get you started into understanding wine.
