This book demystifies wine and the wine making process by approaching this often intimidating subject from a varietal and wine style perspective. Beer and spirits are also covered in this unique handbook. Each chapter includes food and wine, beer, and spirits pairings and how different food flavors and beverages interact. Starting with a look at how wines are made, how to taste wine, and how wines interact with food, the book then moves through the different types of grapes, where they are grown, and the types of wines that are made with them. Designed for beverage managers, chefs, and sommeliers, this handbook covers the science, art, and business of wine.
