Lonesome Orange Kid
Comprehensive textbook on all things wine and wine related. Read about this textbook in the book "Beaten, Seared and Sauced", and was very interested in reading more about the different wines and regions that produce it. Very handy for those mildly curious to those leaning toward sommelier study. It is a HUGE book, and will most likely hold it's relevance throughout the years.

This book was on the recommended list for a wine sensory evaluation course that I'm taking at our local community college, so I sprang for it. I have a number of different books, but this one actually seems quite comprehensive in delving into soil and climate considerations, as well as varietals, clones, etc. Well written!

Well made book, easy to read.
I m studying for a sommelier certificate and I m reading it through very easily.
Unfortunately the book is becoming a little up to date.
In the wine industry you can t stay behind and things change very quickly.
The book has nice maps and covers the most important regions.
At the end of the book there sa nice section regarding "wine service" and "how to make a wine list" not usually found in other books.
I m giving 4 stars just because it s 2010 and as I said a new version would be much accurate.

This book is an incredible resource, starting with the basics and getting into advanced areas of knowledge. One volume to rule them all! Used by the Culinary Institute of America as their wine textbook.

Although this hefty book was the required text for my Wine Appreciation course I have kept it as a reference book and believe it would be useful to any wine enthusiast wanting to know more detailed information about wine.

My daughters BFF is studying to be a sommelier and he was just delighted with this book.

This book is well organized and presents wine in a very logical manner. Some parts of it can be read just like a novel for general information and a lot of it is good for reference when you want to explore a new region. It is a very heavy book (weight wise)
Recommended to me by my beverage instructor who is a sommelier and has been in the industry for years. The book is well organized and well written with lots of photos of grapes, bottle labels and wineries. Great reference and great information to the world of wine for beginners and intermediates.
