Riassunto: Learn about Wine the Visual Way.
You consider yourself fairly open minded about wine. You're familiar with the big five -- Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay -- and are getting comfortable with more obscure grape varieties: the occasional Albarino, Petite Sirah, or Viognier. But just when you thought you had the situation under control, your waiter suggests a Lagrein, your local liquor store is pushing Xynomavro, and your friends now swear by Pineau d'Aunis. What to do?
The popular wine reference, De long's Wine Grape Varietal Table has been improved and expanded. Just as with the first edition, the world of wine grapes is organized in a clear, concise and easy to use reference similar to a periodic table. The table contains 184 red and white grape varieties organized by both body (vertically) and acidity (horizontally). The Wine Indexes, which help to answer the bacchanalian question "what grape are you drinking?", now include all wine regions worldwide. To fit all the additional information in, the table is now 24 x 36 inches (printed on 110 lb. acid-free archival paper), and the indexes now comprise an 88 page perfect-bound book. The table and index book are packaged in an attractive and sturdy gift box.
It makes a great gift for novice or expert lovers of wine and is the first in the De Long’s Wine Info Series, a concise set of wine information guides.
The husband and wife team of Deborah and Steve De Long combined their mutual enthusiasm for both wine and design when they started work on the Wine Grape Varietal Table over 4 years ago. Originally visual people by trade - Deborah, a home fashion designer and Steve, an architect - the table helped them to make sense of the vast and often confusing world of wine grape varieties. Over the past four years they have conducted extensive research and tastings in compiling it.
Both raised in families who love wine, and developed an early appreciation. Deborah was born in England and grew up in Hong Kong where her father served and collected fine clarets. She attended Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. Steve grew up in Oregon wine country where he developed a taste for Pinot Noir. He attended Washington University in St. Louis and Columbia University in New York.
