Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Many oenophiles find themselves stumped when it comes to proper pronunciation of names of even familiar wines. How to Pronounce French, German, and Italian Wine Names offers a simple approach to this problem. Bellucci's carefully crafted pronunciations are easy to follow, and only the strictest linguists will quibble with her results. Her phonetic approaches to French's accents and uniquely pronounced consonants give good approximations of the originals, and she has helpful suggestions for dealing with German's umlauts. Although not noted in the book's title, there are tables of Spanish and Portuguese wine words as well. The comprehensive lists of chateaus, personal names, and grape varieties make this a very helpful addition to any reference collection of books on wine. Mark Knoblauch

Format: Paperback
Diana Belucci's newest reference title isn't just a another dictionary of pronunciation as might be anticipated: rather, How To Pronounce French, German And Italian Wine Names creates and presents a complete method of learning pronunciation to provide keys to the phonetic pronunciation of over 15,000 wine terms, regions, and grape varieties in five different languages. How To Pronounce French, German And Italian Wine Names could've appeared in our 'Literary' or 'Languages' section but deserves mention here for its in-depth interest to wine buffs.

It helped me to pronounce the French wine names like a Frenchmen & Spanish wine like a Spaniard and so on. I am no longer worried about someone in the audience trying to correct my pronunciations. Further it has very comprehensive coverage, I found almost all names that I wanted to pronounce in this book." It real is great value

An excellent compendium of how to pronounce common wine terms. This book is out of print and some folks that own it and are willing to part with it are charging upwards of $100.

English (American) is a practical refinement of British English. French, is equally full of exceptions to the rule. Flipping through this guide, is helpful because it allows you to realize that language and communication is difficult, yet doable, no matter what language your parents speak!
