The book arrived in good condition. I am enjoying it very much so far. The author breaks down each aspect of drinking wine, not just the wine itself. It is broken into five main parts: * The wine drinking experience, essentially, which includes glasses, bottles, corks, and bottle openers. * Winemaking, the grapes involved, how to judge a wine. * Wine around the world. * How to select a wine. * Storing wine, matching wine with foods, evidence for wine being beneficial for health. The appendices are handy, too: * recommended wines by price, color, maker, and other aspects * wine vocab * recommended books for further reading * various wine toasts * wine accessories and their prices * the appropriate wines for occasions * what not to do with wine * wine Internet resources * wine mags, newsletters, and catalogs, and their prices I plan on reading the entirety of it (~500 pages) before I turn twenty-one this year.
