Book DescriptionWINNER OF A GOURMAND WORLD COOKBOOK AWARD 2009! B EST WINE EDUCATION BOOK (THE BEST IN THE WORLD) "I really enjoyed this book ...A constant feature of this book is how well Keith balances his mastery of the technicalities with a certain 'common touch', the ability to explain sometimes complex issues in easy-to-understand terms." -- Association of Wine Educators "...an ideal book to accompany a WSET course." -- Harpers Wine and Spirit Throughout the eight thousand years of vinous history wines have been tasted and their qualities examined in at least a basic way. Today producers can control the growing and winemaking processes, and the consumer may choose from a vast array of wines, both fine and ordinary.

The reader is taken through the various stages of a structured and professional approach to tasting and the book examines the questions as to what constitutes quality in wines, how quality can be recognised and how it is achieved. Also discussed are the faults that can destroy wines at any quality level, and misconceptions as to quality and guarantees.
