Announcing the completely revised and updated edition of The Wine Bible, the perennial bestselling wine book praised as The most informative and entertaining book I've ever seen on the subject (Danny Meyer), A guide that has all the answers (Bobby Flay), Astounding (Thomas Keller), and A magnificent masterpiece of wine writing (Kevin Zraly).

Like a lively course from an expert teacher, The Wine Bible grounds the reader deeply in the fundamentals while layering on informative asides, tips, amusing anecdotes, definitions, glossaries, photos (all new for this edition), maps, labels, and recommended bottles. Karen MacNeil's information comes directly through primary research; for this second edition she has tasted more than 10,000 wines and visited dozens of wine regions around the world. New to the book are wines of China, Japan, Mexico, and Slovenia. And through it all the reader becomes ever more informed—and, because of the author's unique voice, always entertained: In great years Pétrus is ravishing, elegant, and rich—Ingrid Bergman in red satin. Or, describing a Riesling: A laser beam. A sheet of ice. A great crackling bolt of lightning.

One of the foremost wine experts in the United States, Karen MacNeil is the only American to have won every major wine award given in the English Language. In a full-page profile on her, TIME Magazine called Karen, America's Missionary of the Vine. Karen is the author of the award-winning book, THE WINE BIBLE, the single best-selling wine book in the United States, with more than one million copies sold. She is the creator and editor of WineSpeed, the top digital newsletter in wine in the United States. Known for her passion and unique style, she conducts seminars and presentations for corporate clients worldwide. The former wine correspondent for the Today Show on NBC, Karen was also the host of the PBS series Wine, Food and Friends with Karen MacNeil, for which she won an Emmy. And finally, Karen is the creator and Chairman Emeritus of the Rudd Center for Professional Wine Studies at the Culinary Institute of America, which has been called the Harvard of wine education.
