9780151007141: Oz Clarke's Encyclopedia of Grapes

The first authoritative, illustrated reference book on the world's great wine grapes in nearly twenty years.

Almost all wine lovers understand that the grape variety or blend in a wine is the most influential factor in a wine's taste. In Oz Clarke's Encyclopedia of Grapes Clarke explains and illuminates these qualities with concise and vivid descriptions of the 350 major grape varieties of the world, in an easy-to-use, A-to-Z format.

Special features on the classic varieties are exquisitely illustrated with original paintings, and double-page spreads on other major grapes describe the varieties, their history, geography, character, and cultural context. The transformation of grapes into wine is fully detailed and illustrated with charts that provide essential information on which grapes are allowed in each wine. The book concludes with a glossary of technical terms, a comprehensive index of grape names and their synonyms, and a general index.

With its luscious artwork, evocative text, and practical information, Oz Clarke's Encyclopedia of Grapes makes a uniquely attractive and useful gift-a delight to browse and a mine of interesting information.

Review:

Offered up as a lively and comprehensive alphabetical discussion of some 350 types of wine grapes, Oz Clarke's Encyclopedia of Grapes could double as a crush course in viticulture as taught by the award-winning, U.K.-based wine writer and coauthor Margaret Rand. Beginning with three lines for Abouriou ("on the way out, and won't be much missed") and ending with nine pages for Zinfandel, the book certainly delivers. And the approachable scholarship included in the introductory pages--touching on everything from the difference between a hybrid and a cross and the floating definition of "ripe"--provides an informative overview. Blending Clarke's Mourvedre-like, dryly tannic, intoxicatingly kicky writing style with the firm Syrah-esque backbone of Rand's collaboration, Oz Clarke's Encyclopedia of Grapes is premium juice. --Tony Mason
