Just tell me what's good!

For those who have a taste for accessible, affordable wines and a distaste for comparative shopping.

With tens of thousands of wines competing for attention, tough economic times, and time-pressed wine drinkers, there has never been a better time to buy popular wines. 'Good, Better, Best Wines', is the first book that focuses exclusively on "big brands", breaking them down to good, better and best, and by price. Each taste-tested wine is accompanied by a photo of the bottle, for ease of identificiation, as well as tasting notes, food matches, trade secrets, and more. Wine lovers will save the time they'd be comparing to have more time for tasting. Coverage includes:

-White wines-blends, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio / Gris, Fume / Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and others

- Red wines-blends, cabernet Sauvignon, merlot, Syrah / Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and others

- Rosés and sparkling wines

- The basics on buying wines, from vintages to screwcaps, and storing, serving, and tasting wine

Review: Good, Better, Best Wines: A No-Nonsense Guide to Popular Wines

Recensione dell'utente  - Joel - Goodreads

Perfect for those that need to know what to buy at that wine shop that is really a beer or liquor store. These owner's can not help only have the mass produced bottles, but sometimes, that's all you can find. Leggi recensione completa
