The Wine Bible Paperback ? February 1, 2000 1075 N/A

Though it drinks deep of its subject, Karen MacNeils Wine Bible deftly avoids two traps many wine books fall into: talking down to wine novices or talking up to more experienced enophiles. The book avoids these traps through MacNeils obvious, and infectious, love of her subject, which comes out in almost every sentence of the book, and which lets her talk about wine in a way that combines the good teacher, the trusted friend, and the expert sommelier. As director of the wine program at the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, California, MacNeil is one of the worlds true experts on wine. After reading a chapter on the Burgenland, for example, youve learned about the regions sweet wines while feeling like youre actually there, toasting a glass of Cuvee Suss with the author. It is this passion that leads to describing an Italian riservas as mesmerizing and a Cabernet Sauvignon as having texture like cashmere. The Wine Bible is broken into countries, hitting all of the major wine producers and most of the minor ones. Each section gives detailed descriptions of the countrys wines (with chapters on individual regions when necessary), highlighting specific wine producers and individual wines, as well as talking about local foods, customs, and other tidbits that add to the reading experience. MacNeil begins her journey through the worlds wine with an invaluable section on Mastering Wine, which lets a reader get ready before uncorking separate sections. --A.J. Rathbun
