""Peter Saunders is, without doubt, one of the top wine tutors in the world."" - Dr. Alan Young, President of the International Wine Academy

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.
