I have to be honest that I don’t know if I would have read this book on my own because wine is so involved that I hid around picking up wine just by the labels. Be the first to write a review. A great overview with references to additional books for many types of wine if you want more in-depth knowledge.

For a book to help guide and inform you through your own tastings and wine in general that I really love is Andrea Robinson’s Great Wine Made Simple.

There is so much information in here – on the different regions, different varieties etc. I’m sure ill pick this one up again in the future, it’s just that I’m not that excited to do so.

I’ve been advised that this is roughly the minimum amount I need to know about wine to be able survive, and after reading it, it’s demystified a great deal for me. It definitely helped that I had a base level of knowledge, but found that this booked continued to add more to my understanding. This book might work well for a group of people who used it as a text book for their own wine course, but as an at home read I found it difficult to follow.

Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. Apr 21, Russ rated it really liked it. I recommend this for anyone really getting into wine, beyond just being a beginner.


Praedikatswein breaks down further: Aug 23, Tim Wake rated it it was amazing. In particular, I love how the author breaks down how to taste wine and what to look for in a simple way.

As always, he answers every question about wine; offers the most up-to-date recommendations; provides advice on buying wine in stores and on the Internet; takes you on a country-by-country, region-by-region ratings tour of the latest vintages; and starts you on your way to becoming a wine connoisseur. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

You could learn a lot from this book if you really used it as a coursebook. We have ratings, but no written reviews for this, yet. A wealth of knowledge, well-organized, and without the pretension that usually accompanies the subject.


Windows on the World Complete Wine Course

I learned quite a bit from this book, and will keep it around for reference from time to time as it is a plethora of knowledge. I understand more about it now, such as how it’s made, where it’s made, which countries produce wine the most, flavor and scents, how to taste wine, and what a sommelier does.

T I recently took a wine course as a part of my current curriculum. Relevant to me a big Riesling fan is some info on German wines: Plus, this unequaled volume retains all the invaluable information, fabulous illustrations, and gorgeous styling of the 20th anniversary edition. I now know a lot more than I did about California wines, and know something about the wines of the other major regions of the world as well.

The Windows on the World Complete Wine Course will give you all the tools you need to discover and enjoy the perfect wines for you. A very large book about wine, very informative and a good read.

I don’t necessarily think you can get specific bottle recommendations from reading this, but will help you understand the regions and the grapes. I liked the little tips sprinkled throughout and that the writing wasn’t overly technical.

Purchased the newest edition to have information on Oregon and Washington wines.
