Savor the glories of the grape in this all-new, revised and updated edition of the best-selling Wine For Dummies. Even if you've never sipped a glass of wine in your life, a wonderful world is awaiting as you find out how to taste wine, what types of grapes are used in the wine-making process, and how wines are named. A little knowledge, say husband-and-wife authors Ed McCarthy and Mary Ewing-Mulligan, can go a long way in enhancing your delight and appreciation of wine.

After you master the basics of enjoying fine wines, take a tour of the famous wine-growing regions of the world, from Burgundy to the Napa Valley, and discover vintage advice on great wines for any occasion as you decant the wisdom of these seasoned wine aficionados. Find out how to handle snooty clerks, restaurant wine lists, and stubborn corks. Uncork a wealth of practical advice and recommendations on where, when, and how to buy the wines you love and how to store them properly. Improve your wine vocabulary, too, so that when you make that great discovery, you can say more than, Gee, this tastes good!"
