Wine Folly, the Essential Guide to Wine covers a wide range of wine topics with the core of the book being a varietal breakdown – categorized by wine styles. Each varietal is listed with various visual and verbal descriptions – including possible flavors, dominant flavors, where it commonly is grown and the style of how it is usually made.
