Incredibly, this text is the standard course work for the Court of Master Sommeliers Certified and Advanced examinations. This book is packed full of typographical errors, terrible maps and dubious assertions. From the state of this material, I can hardly believe that this is the third edition. By comparison to wine references that were written in the past, contemporary wine journalism is advanced, authoritative and relatively unbiased. One need look no further than the excellent texts written by Jancis Robinson or James Goode to find superb examples in this genre. This book would find itself very quickly at my local thrift store, if it were not for my upcoming examination. Its primary usefulness should be considered as an outline to the scope of the testing involved in the certification process.

The 2008 edition is a wonderful and informative romp through the Old School viewpoint. If this was in ANY other industry (tech and such)it might be sniffed at for structure and copy proof, but all hail Julyan for in-depth information...Just a bit toffee nosed for me (see other reviewers). If you have to read this alone to pass THE test...good luck.

I bought this book as I started to get more and more involved in the wine world. It quickly became an invaluable resource to me with learning about wine and wine producing regions. Being a much more knowledgeable professional made me a more effective upseller as well. I would recommend this to students and those just getting into the professional wine world. It will provide you with a wealth of knowledge.

This is your go to book, when studing for any level "som test". You can look elsewhere, but you can usually find the answer to your wine questions, in this book.
