Wine labels are cryptic and confusing to most wine consumers.
The information provided there indicates specific quality
standards, grape varieties, alcohol content and volume of
production, but it is often hard to decipher the code.
Wine Label Language is a welcome encyclopedic reference that
demystifies and explains how to interpret wine labels. Using simple
terms, the book identifies and describes the various regions and
appellations used on wine labels around the world. Knowing from
which region a wine comes is a critical factor in determining its
quality and value. This book introduces the labeling concept of the
wine is from this region instead of the wine from this grape. This
helps consumers identify the winemaking areas that consistently
produce superior vintages.
Newcomers to the delights of wine will learn all the basics, for
instance the difference between a Bordeaux and Burgundy. Longtime
wine buffs will heighten their enjoyment by understanding the
differences within their favorite regions. A single region such as
Bordeaux has many distinct areas or districts that affect the
wine's quality and price.
Wine Label Language covers every major winemaking region of the
world and explains the natural conditions and legal restrictions
that each region uses to produce and name its own unique wine.
