    "An exhilarating wine book...No serious wine lover's library is complete without it" Wine Spectator Grapes & Wines is the key to enjoying modern wine. Approaching wine through grapes is in tune with the way consumers now think and learn about wine. Most wines, especially those from the Americas, Australasia and South Africa, are now sold under the name of the grape variety used rather than under the old European system of chateau and appellation name. You're standing in a wine shop and see bottles labeled Aglianico or Tannat. Do you know what they are? Garnatxa sounds familiar and it is as it is the Basque name of the popular Grenache grape but how do you know this? You've heard of Carmenere from Chile and probably bought the wine but did you know it is an old historic Bordeaux variety? This is the perfect book to help you find out more about the world's top classic grapes, from Cabernet Sauvignon to Zinfandel - the history, the places, the people, the wine styles and the flavours are covered in detail. It is also just the book for dipping into as you come across an unfamiliar grape variety. Grapes & Wines has been thoroughly revised and updated.

    Everyone knows that James Bond prefers an alcoholic drink to a soft drink. In fact, he even goes as far as deriding tea as 'mud' and blaming it for the collapse of the British Empire. Although it's the legendary Vodka Martini that he's best known for, he also orders many classic cocktails, including an Old-Fashioned, an Americano and a Negroni, all of which appear in this book. Bond also effortlessly creates his own drink in 'Casino Royale': 'Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. Got it?' And so the Vesper was born, to the delight of bar owners across the globe. However, it's not only cocktails that he's partial to. Bond orders Scotch and soda 21 times in the books, but he's also keen on bourbon and a brandy and ginger ale. So why not raise a glass and toast the health of the world's most-loved, smooth-talking secret agent with one of his favourite drinks.
