The Wine Bible
Nothing improves the experience of wine like knowledge. The proof is in the numbers: Karen McNeil’s The Wine Bible is America’s bestselling wine book with over 800,000 copies in print. Now, this essential book is even better, with a new third edition that’s completely revised, completely updated, given a larger trim size, and—yes!—now in full-color with over 400 new photographs.
No other wine book compares to The Wine Bible in its gift for grounding the reader deeply, and happily, in the fundamentals while layering on passionate asides, tips, anecdotes, definitions, illustrations, maps, labels, and recommended bottles. Karen McNeil, “America’s missionary of the vine” (TIME Magazine), is the only U.S. winner of every major wine award in the English language. And she herself has never stopped learning. For this new edition, she tasted $168,000 worth of wines, a tremendous sacrifice to keep the reader current with new chapters on Great Britain, Croatia, Israel; a new section called In the Beginning…Wine in the Ancient World; new fully revised Great Wines section (formerly the “Wines to Know”) for each country and region; expanded chapters on France, Italy, Australia, South America, and the U.S.; an expanded grape glossary including 400-plus varieties; a revised wine terms glossary; and an expanded Mastering Wine Section incorporating latest science on taste and smell.
Truly, a bible for curious wine lovers of every level of expertise. The same people spent over $68 billion in the U.S. on wine last year.
