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.

- Perfect party wines for specific occasions--wedding receptions, dinner parties, garden parties, and more.

"It's about time someone of Carolyn's' calibre stepped forward to champion these humble yet satisfying wines. The first paragraph alone is worth the price of admission." - Richard Best, The Frugal Oenophile
"This book is a fabulous resource. It really filled a niche that needed to be addressed." - Lynne Webb, Publisher, Mygourmetconnection.com
