From grape to glass



The ultimate visual course for wine lovers seeking no-nonsense practical information that brings the subject to life.

Discover which wines you like and why, read about the journey from grape to glass, and get to grips with those all-important food and wine pairings. Pore over vibrant infographics, and pair with a glass of red or white as you try out a selection of taste tests.

A corker of a guide that combines essential know-how with plenty of fun facts, Wine: A Tasting Course contains everything you need to talk, taste, and enjoy your favourite vintage.
