    Barolo and Barbaresco The King and Queen of Italian Wine
    ISBN: 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.

    Bordeaux Grands Crus Classes 1855 Wines of the Medoc and Sauternes
    ISBN: 9782080203250
    Publication date: 01/02/2018

    Step inside the châteaux of the fabled red wines of the Médoc and white wines of Sauternes on this insider’s tour, complete with tasting notes for the great vintages.

    The landmark creation of the Grands Crus Classés in 1855 set the benchmark for wine quality around the world. The sixty-one reds of the Médoc and twenty-seven whites of Sauternes are considered the finest wines in the world. The care that goes into creating these exceptional wines is an art, and the picturesque domaines where this craft is perfected are as beautiful as their wines are refined. This is the first book dedicated to the red and white wines that offers the history of each domaine, along with a guide to the great vintages and an address book to the vineyards. Newly commissioned photographs capture the region throughout the seasons, making this handsome volume both a glorious voyage and an important reference for any wine lover.

    The wineries stand beside the stunning properties and belie the meticulous and magical work that they shelter, where a long line of elite winemakers fastidiously watch over the laborious tradition that has defined these exceptional wines for more than 150 years. A château’s history can be a riveting saga, but it invariably demonstrates that the splendor of great Bordeaux wines resides in perfect balance.
