Drink up this snobbery-free guide to quickly finding which wines are worth your money.
Buying a popular wine should be simple, not pretentious and expensive. In this completely revised second edition, wine expert Carolyn Evans Hammond compares the bestselling wines in North America by price (up to $15) in many wine styles, including Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. The listings reveal the distinct smell, flavor, and texture for each wine as well as the alcohol content by volume to help you choose the right wine for you.
Whether you're rushing to find the right wine for a summertime backyard BBQ, New Year's Eve celebration, or a dinner party or you're planning the wine choices for an upcoming wedding or other fancy soirée, this book gives you everything you need to know to make the perfect selection. Every bottle or box of wine is shown in vivid color, and because this guide is also small enough to pop in your pocket and take with you anywhere, you can easily find the wines that suit whatever occasion calls for wine. In this way, this book can also help you look like a wine expert at any event you host. You'll never make a bad wine choice again and you'll never spend more than you want-all thanks to this guide and Carolyn's extraordinary wine knowledge.
"They're big, they're out there, but they're not all the same. This book cuts a sure course through the ocean of popular wines. Carolyn's enthusiasm and stylistic panache tells you what you need to know-and fast." - Andrew Jefford, columnist for Decanter and chairman of the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards
