--Harvey Steiman, " Wine Spectator"

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.

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.

We recently had a wine pairing dinner and pulled out an older edition of our Wine Lover's Companion for a number of questions on background, spelling and pronunciation of various wines. One of the gentlemen at the dinner had never seen this book, so we ordered this edition for him. He is thrilled. He couldn't get over the information in this book and has raved about it ever since. He was amazed that he hadn't heard of it. Well, my husband and I were grinning at each other over our glasses of vino! Home Run.

Highly Recommend!

Here's the book you must have if you want the answers to those questions that frequently come up about nearly everything associated with wine. The author, Ron Herbst, has done a magnificent job with this book. The reader will find new insights on wine that will be very helpful. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in wine.

My go-to reference for any wine question. I love this book -- honestly if you were to buy ONE wine reference to have handy at home, this would be the one. The way the information is organized makes a lot of sense, and the focus is on the most useful terms. If you go through and read even a little bit here and there, you will learn a lot very quickly. I tell all of my friends who collect cookbooks and food and wine books to pick up a copy. Very helpful for deciphering foreign wine label terms from all the major wine regions: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, etc.

This is a nicely composed reference book on wines and related items. However, it seems to be difficult to use on a digital reader such aa my kindle as you cannot go to index and then go to a page number or even look something up alphabetically. Hard cover book is probably great.

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.
