Wine has become an important part of North American mealtimes; it provides one of the most enjoyable partners to any dish. The consumption of wine has increased dramatically -- and so has interest in the history and creation of wine. Unlike that of many other drinks, the flavor of wine is determined by hundreds of different factors often having nothing to do with the winegrower's influence.Dictionary of Wine provides a comprehensive guide to the specialist terms used in growing, producing and tasting wine. It covers the basic concepts -- from the different types of grapes, regions and methods of growing vines -- right through to the finished product. Many other wine guides provide descriptions of vintages and sources of wine; Dictionary of Wine also covers the terms used in making and tasting wine.Each entry is written in the encyclopedic style of other Fitzroy Dearborn dictionaries -- PC and the Internet, Astronomy, Law, etc.; the definitions are clear and concise, comprehensible even to beginners. The text is fully illustrated with line drawings and maps.
