Wine, made and drunk locally, has been a part of life in the sunlit Mediterranean basin since ancient times. Now, all the temperate regions of the world produce wine. With that geographical expansion has come a new flowering of aromas and flavours. Socially, too, wine is now accessible to all. Its pleasures are no longer the preserve of a wealthy elite. The first part of the book, The Tools, introduces you to the kit you’ll need for tasting and thinking about wine, including different glasses, the varying colours of key wine types and their smell and taste. You’ll learn how to choose wine and record your impressions of what you taste. The Elements explains wine’s components. Andrew profiles the Magnificent Seven grape varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Pinot Noir, plus many more from the extended vine family. He also pictures what happens in the earth and sky as the vine grows, and the role of the winemaker in shaping the finished product. The final part of the book, The Journey, takes you on a tour of the world’s wine-producing countries, describing the characteristics of each. If you want to know more about wine’s unique sensual pleasures, enrol on Andrew Jefford’s Wine Course today.

- Barolo and Barbaresco The King and Queen of Italian WineISBN: 9780520273269
Publication date: 01/10/2014
Following on the success of her books on Brunello di Montalcino, renowned author and wine critic Kerin O'Keefe takes readers on a historic and in-depth journey to discover Barolo and Barbaresco, two of Italy's most fascinating and storied wines. In this groundbreaking new book, O'Keefe gives a comprehensive overview of the stunning side-by-side growing areas of these two world-class wines that are separated only by the city of Alba and profiles a number of the fiercely individualistic winemakers who create structured yet elegant and complex wines of remarkable depth from Italy's noblest grape, Nebbiolo. A masterful narrator of the origins of aristocratic winemaking in this region, O'Keefe gives readers a clear picture of why Barolo is called both the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings. Profiles of key Barolo and Barbaresco villages include fascinating stories of the families, wine producers, and idiosyncratic personalities that have shaped the area and its wines and helped ignite the Italian Quality Wine Revolution that eventually swept through all of Italy. The book also considers practical factors impacting winemaking in this region, including climate change, destructive use of harsh chemicals in the vineyards versus the gentler treatments used for centuries, and expansion and zoning of vineyard areas. Readers will also appreciate a helpful vintage guide to Barolo and Barbaresco and a glossary of useful Italian wine terms.

- Barossa ShirazISBN: 9781743052372
Publication date: 01/10/2013
'Barossa Shiraz: Discovering the tastes of the Barossas regions' is the first book in Australia to systematically investigate the relationship between the flavour of a wine and its origin. This book is based on author Thomas Girgensohn's extensive knowledge of Australian wines and his personal research over nearly 30 years. He focuses on the Barossa, Australias best-known wine region, and explores Shiraz, Australia's most popular wine. 'Barossa Shiraz' explains the concept of 'terroir' - the contribution of the vineyard's site to the quality of the grapes and wine produced from it - in easy to understand terms. 'Barossa Shiraz' divides the Barossa into eleven sub-regions, each with its own 'terroir'. Major differences between 'terroirs' are identified, and a tasting profile for each sub-region is provided. Thomas Girgensohn examines major wineries and benchmark vineyards - those whose wines display the sub-regional characteristics best. Their locations are shown on detailed maps, and the book includes profiles of leading Barossa winemakers. This is the first time an author has set out to characterise the sub-regions of a famous district according to the flavour and qualities of the wines produced rather than simply climatic or geological factors. Reading 'Barossa Shiraz' will enable enthusiasts to appreciate the differences in flavour and structure of Shiraz - and to enjoy their wine even more! 'Thomas Girgensohn's observations and intuitive tastings, based on extensive personal experience and systematic review are topical, sagacious and prescient ... 'Barossa Shiraz' is a remarkable and enlightened achievement.' - Andrew Caillard, MW
