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. It reveals in plain English, the good, better, and very best wines for the money you're willing to spend--along with photos of over 250 clearly labeled bottles to make shopping easier.
Good Better Best Wines is the first book to rank the best-selling wines in the US with names like Beringer, Woodbridge, Rosemount and Lindemans. These tend to be big-sellers elsewhere as well so they'll likely be stocked at your local store.
Inside you'll find:

- 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.
