The Wine Savant
Todayâ€™s dynamic wine culture calls for a different kind of wine book. The Wine Savant is just that: punchy, polemical, and brimming with insights to educate and entertain beginning wine drinkers and seasoned oenophiles alike.
Never has the wine world had so much to offer, and never have smart decisions about value, quality, grape, and season been so difficult to make. In The Wine Savant, Michael Steinberger tramps through the world of contemporary wineâ€”from three-buck Chuck and bucket-list Bordeaux to bottle speculators and biodynamic wineriesâ€”to give the inside scoop on the key concerns facing the new generation of wine lovers:
Featuring expert buying guidesâ€”including the New Kings of California and the Worldâ€™s Great $25-and-Under Bottlesâ€”and tips on tough-to-pair cuisines like Indian and Japanese, The Wine Savant is the perfect guide to todayâ€™s often-bewildering realm of choice: ferociously opinionated and committed body and soul to enjoying every glass.
Why is California suddenly cool again?
- Whatâ€™s really the difference between a 95-point wine and a 94-point wine?
- Why is Burgundy ascendant and Bordeaux suddenly so passÃ©?
- Whatâ€™s a biodynamic wine, whatâ€™s a natural wine, and should you care?
- Do food and wine pairings still matter?

From Vines To Wines In Classical Rome
David L. Thurmond's From Vines to Wines in Classical Rome is the first general handbook on winemaking in Rome in over 100 years. In this work, Thurmond surveys the biology of the vine, the protohistory, history, viticulture, winemaking, distribution and modes of consumption of wine in classical Rome. He uses a close reading of the relevant Latin texts along with a careful survey of relevant archaeology and comparative practices from modern viticulture and oenology to elucidate this essential element of Roman culture.
Decoding French Wine

This new second edition of the book covers the prominent areas of Bordeaux, Loire, Burgundy, Alsace, Rhone, Languedoc-Roussillon and Champagne in a short, concise and clear manner, covering the necessary geography, history and practices of each region for readers to gain a fundamental understanding of wine growing throughout the country and begin to explore, and build a familiarity with, wines from each of these areas.
