There's a lot to know about wine, but Idiot's Guides: Wine makes learning easy! This beautiful full-color book opens with an introduction to wine — including how it's made and the various types of grapes and wines available. Additional easy-to-understand content clearly shows you how to read a wine label and how to taste wine. The author explains how to buy wine, serve wine at home, order it at restaurants, and perfectly pair it with different types of food. From there, you are taken on a tour of the world's wines, region by region, from Europe, to the southern hemisphere, to North and South America.
