Actor and wine expert Julian Curry has devised a unique audiobook guide to wine which takes the listener to the heart of winemaking and wine drinking in a clear but light-hearted manner. However rich and complex the subject of wine may be, he insists it is also hugely rewarding and great fun.

Curry's informative and entertaining program begins with a description of work in the vineyard and cellar. It outlines the many choices faced by grape-grower and winemaker, resulting in the variety of different styles of wine produced. It continues with wine's journey from winery to gullet, with advice on cellaring, buying, serving food-matching and tasting. And it concludes with a lengthy section devoted to all the major wine regions, in the Old World and the New.

    " Book gave an overview of wine. The beginning is the making of wine and later the different styles of wine and means of enjoying it. Finally he discusses the different regions and this is meant more as a reference than anything. "

    " I "read" this over vacation. If you have 5 hours, it's a thorough, well-organized introduction to viticulture, wine making, buying, tasting, and the major varietals of the major geographical regions. The last section is a little tough to take in without visuals (i.e. maps), but still well worth it. "

    " Probably the best overview on wine I've ever heard. Done strictly as an audio program by British Actor Julian Curry, his enthusiasm for wine and his wonderful narration make this a real treat. "
