About the Author

Not <these> writers. Authors of "dummies" wine books since "Wine for Dummies" in 1995, they have closely followed Italy's quality revolution, and so can point you to a world of pleasure you might otherwise miss.
After saying that much I'm in danger of repeating what I wrote in my review of the authors'"FRENCH Wine for Dummies," published
simultaneously, so you should scamper right over to my review of that book for more details. Then you'll have the complete rundown on both.
One thing I should add: these books aren't really for dummies. I keep them at hand and I know several other pros who do too.
Bill Marsano is a contributing editor of Hemispheres, United Airlines' in-flight magazine, for which he frequently writes on wine and spirits. One of his Hemisphere articles won a James Beard medal in 1999.
Pros: great knowledge, easy to follow
Cons: difficult Italian systems, poor maps
I really enjoy reading it before opening up a bottle of a wine that I'm trying for the first time. Also a nice reference if you plan on starting a fun little wine club with your friends.
If you're interested in knowing more about wine in general, I would also like to recommend the Wine for Dummies which is an extremely good value for the information that is presented.
