Synopsis

The Wine Year by Rosalind Cooper

Wine is a product of the land, made by dedicated producers in intriguing places all over the world. This stylish new book invites the reader to explore those regions and thus understand how a particular wine evolves from where and when it is created. Experienced wine writer Rosalind Cooper reveals how the vine grows through the year, and for each month, she focuses on a particular aspect of wine: for example, how it is made; vintages and vats; or how to choose the ultimate selection for your home cellar.There are mouth-watering menus to match to wine choices, and atmospheric accounts of where to travel to experience at first hand the most significant parts of the world of wine. Fairs and festivals where the wine lover can celebrate in style are also featured, and each chapter concludes with a fascinating profile of a key wine producer, from Stephane Tsassis of Champagne Laurent-Perrier to Peter Gago, Chief Winemaker of Penfolds, Australia.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
