Carolyn Evans Hammond is a qualified sommelier, wine educator, seasoned journalist, and writer. Before writing about wine, she worked in the London wine trade.
The first buying guide to focus exclusively on the popular big brands you can find anywhere!

When it comes to wine, your "wants" are pretty simple: a good wine at a price you can afford, that's stocked at your local wine shop or supermarket. You don't need a lot of detail, just the stripped-down, jargon-free facts: how the wine tastes, how much it costs, and if you'll be able to find it. Good Better Best Wines gives you just that.

- Perfect party wines for specific occasions--wedding receptions, dinner parties, garden parties, and more.
- Trade secrets for getting the most out of each bottle, including proper storage, service techniques, and food pairings.

"This book is a fabulous resource. It really filled a niche that needed to be addressed." - Lynne Webb, Publisher,
"We're in an era when ch...
