A wine book unlike any other, THE FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO WINE offers a fresh perspective via the single aspect of wine most compelling to food lovers: flavor.

At the heart of this indispensable reference, formatted like the authors' two previous bestsellers The Flavor Bible and What to Drink with What You Eat, is an encyclopedic A-to-Z guide profiling hundreds of different wines by their essential characteristics-from body and intensity to distinguishing flavors, from suggested serving temperatures and ideal food pairings to recommended producers (including many iconic examples). The book provides illuminating insights from dozens of America's best sommeliers via informative sidebars, charts and boxes, which complement the book's gorgeous four-color photography. Another groundbreaking work from two of the ultimate culinary insiders, this instant classic is the perfect gift book.

"Their premise - that food lovers know flavor andtherefore have the chops to understand, discover, and choose great wines to gowith their meals - allows the authors to leave behind confusing winestatistics, vintages, critical wine scores, and tongue-tying wineclassifications. Instead, they enliven their wine story-telling by goingstraight to the country's foremost sommeliers for food and wine pairingguidance."—Fine Cooking Magazine
