This book in the Hachette Wine Library series shows you how to identify the different grape vines, the range of flavors they give to the wines, and also discusses the cultivation process.

Describes 36 well-known grape varieties in detail. Some varieties, such as Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Chardonnay and Syrah are cultivated throughout the world, others only flourish in certain areas.

Find out which wines are produced from a single grape variety, or how grapes can be blended to produce some of the most famous wines in the world. Each variety is beautifully illustrated in full-color and accompanied by several key points to assist in their identification.

Our favorite illustration is for Muscat Blanc grapes (click to enlarge):
