A Portable Wine Gem
Leading us through the world of wine, Hugh Johnson has produced his 37th consecutive Pocket Wine Book 2014. In his bestselling guide, Hugh moves through the wine selection, pairing and identifying process, beginning first with grape varieties. Providing current news on more than 6,000 wines, Hugh keeps his readers ahead of the learning curve. He highlights figures to watch in 2014, and flashes red lights for wines with which to tread cautiously, such as the tricky German labels that read Bereich and Grosslage. New to this edition is a section on recommendations based on taste and grape preference, which Hugh clearly states is NOT just a list of “The World’s Best Wines”. Always worthwhile and a great holiday token, Hugh Johnson’s Pocket Wine Guide is available for $16.
