While the backbone of the book is a tasting course, the practical core sections include useful insights on the ‘background’ of each grape variety, for example where it is commonly grown.

It also reflects the experience and passions of the team at the British wine merchant, with articles and discussions on the history of wine, as well as on the latest thinking, fashions and debates taking place among winemakers today.
