The numerous variations of wine produced in Europe, North America, and the Southern Hemisphere are presented for your students. Special features include detailed color diagrams and photographs, and useful appendices designed for use as a quick reference or a starting place for more research on topics of interest. This book now includes a new chapter on pairing food and wine and a new chapter on the business of wine and the role of producers, distributors and retailers.
