It gives a concise but fairly complete introduction to winemaking and viticulture and then summarizes each of the main winemaking regions of the world in order to give the reader the fundamentals to spot wines and varietals in a logical manner.
It is also the first publication I've seen to give proper crib sheets comparing wines from different regions made from the same varietals.
A must have for MW/MS students and wine lovers who have fun doing blind tastings.
