For beginner wine lovers (and a reference guide for wine waiters) whose knowledge of wine is limited to "Yuk!" or "Yum!" this is the book for you. Are you timid when the conversation turns to wine? Every wine term you need is here--from Acidulation to Zinfandel. Don't feel alone. THE WINE LOVER'S VOCABULARY BIBLE will make every neophyte imbiber comfortable at social or company events where colleagues are marveling (or complaining) about the wine being served. Here is the beginning point of what can be a lifetime of enjoying fine wine. Here you will learn the vocabulary of fine wine to serve as a basis for all further knowledge. The Wine Lover's Vocabulary Bible aims to convert a diffident emerging wine lover into an enlightened and passionate consumer. One who delights in talking about wine with words that can be shared. One who is able to talk about where the wine came from, comfortable enough to find words that describe the sensory experience and to be familiar with the "typicity" of those wines you love most. Don't' throw your hands up and say that knowing wine is beyond reach. Never say-heaven forfend!-that you don't have a palate (unless this condition has been medically diagnosed). You do have a palate! You just need to practice. Like the marathon runner, you need to get much mileage behind you. What an enjoyable task. There is much to be learned but the basics in this-irreverent and unapologetically opinionated 'Bible'-will make it possible to grow big time into a savvy relationship with the post-fermentation grape. Your friends may be astonished at your quick conversion to a nouveau aficionado with informed opinions of your very own. How does a white Burgundy differ from a Sonoma Chardonnay? How is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine from Bordeaux different from a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon? Why does a Marlborough (New Zealand) Sauvignon Blanc taste like it has a grapefruit blended in? (It does not!) And how can one understand Italy with its extraordinary plantings of two thousand different grape varieties and one million vineyards? Do the French have a lock on quality that no other growing region can challenge? What about the New World wines? Are they destined for the supermarket shelves only or are they challenging wine history? (They are.)

Diffident to express your wine tasting vocabulary other than 'Yuk!' or 'Yum!'? Read on. Beginning Wine Lovers need to know French wine because it is the quality standard against which all other wines are measured. In THE FRENCH WINE LOVER'S BIBLE, you will learn basic knowledge such as that White Burgundy can only be made with Chardonnay. And Red Burgundy is made 100% with Pinot Noir. By law!That the difference between Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux and the neighboring communes of Pomerol and St. Emilion is weather and the varietals planted in the vineyards. It's cooler in inland Pomerol/St. Emilion and warmer where Bordeaux reaches into the Atlantic and is warmed by the Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Drift. You may forever remember that St. Emilion/Pomerol glory in early ripening varietals such as Cabernet Franc and Merlot while their warmer neighbors-Pauillac, Ste. Estephe, St.-Julien and Margaux--can ripen Cabernet Sauvignon of fantastic quality (when Bordeaux has a fantastic vintage which only happens 3 years out of 10).The reader will learn of the Sauvignon Blanc wines grown on both sides of the Loire River. And too learn of the fantastic Syrah grape grown in the northern reaches of the Rhone Valley south of Burgundy and expressed regally in the Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, St. Joseph and Cornas. The new wine lover will learn too of the white wines of Macon just south of the Côte d'Or, that river of those Chardonnays known already too many newbies as St. Veran and Pouilly-Fuissé. And of Champagne, Chablis, Alsace and the Loire River valley with its Sauvignon Blancs and Muscadet. And the picnic wines of Beaujolais. And finally learn of Provence Rosé and Languedoc/Rousillon the great source of bulk wine destined to become cheap supermarket wine.The French were the first---and justifiably so-to proclaim their wines the greatest. The image took. And this quality image continues to shine brightly-and deservedly--outward from the legendary and historic vineyards of France. Competition from Italy, Spain and the New World is fierce when it comes to quality wines, but French wine remains the standard of comparison.Allons, mes amis!

Announcing the completely revised and updated edition of The Wine Bible, the perennial bestselling wine book praised as “The most informative and entertaining book I’ve ever seen on the subject” (Danny Meyer), “A guide that has all the answers” (Bobby Flay), “Astounding” (Thomas Keller), and “A magnificent masterpiece of wine writing” (Kevin Zraly). Like a lively course from an expert teacher, The Wine Bible grounds the reader deeply in the fundamentals while layering on informative asides, tips, amusing anecdotes, definitions, glossaries, photos (all new for this edition), maps, labels, and recommended bottles. Karen MacNeil’s information comes directly through primary research; for this second edition she has tasted more than 10,000 wines and visited dozens of wine regions around the world. New to the book are wines of China, Japan, Mexico, and Slovenia. And through it all the reader becomes ever more informed—and, because of the author’s unique voice, always entertained: “In great years Pétrus is ravishing, elegant, and rich—Ingrid Bergman in red satin.” Or, describing a Riesling: “A laser beam. A sheet of ice. A great crackling bolt of lightning.”

Wine was an inseparable part of the ancient Israeli diet and its production was so important that farmers with active vineyards were exempt from military service. In the Bible, only water and bread are mentioned as often. In Wine in the Bible, Jabier Marquinez gives readers unique insight into wine's inextricable place in the lives of ancient Israelites with direct references form the Old and New Testaments, which relay such intricate details as specific vineyard practices from grafting and pruning to watering and fertilizing, ethical labor agreements with foreign vineyard workers, vineyard pests and proper abatement techniques, ancient winery technology, and the use of wine as medicine and dyes. This book is a fascinating examination of the daily lives, at work and leisure, of Biblical-era winemakers and wine drinkers.

Having been a teetotaler for more than thirty years, the author's personal habits, associations, and sympathies have all been in favor of the unfermented theory; but the facts encountered in the present investigation have constrained him, reluctantly, to conclude that, so far as the wines of the ancients are concerned, unfermented wine is a myth. - Preface.

Funny Stuff in the Bible is a field trip through the Bible library hunting for funny stuff. The many stories and other literature in this library were written over a period of a thousand years. This is well known. Thinking of the Bible as a library provides perspective. Though there are more copies of this library, its writings bound into a single volume, than of any other book in the world, the literature in it is underrated and underenjoyed. It is underenjoyed because of the smog created by the notion that every word is religiously serious and not for enjoyment, let alone laughter. This overlay of morality and religious seriousness makes it difficult to read a particular story as we do other stories in the world. Funny Stuff shakes off these notions to enjoy some stories. The Bible is a large library. We can only explore a little of it as we look both for stuff that makes us laugh and also things that are strange. We investigate what we come across--stumble on, so to speak. The quest is undertaken in good humor and with light hearts.
