Item description for Single Grape Wines: How to Taste and Recognize by Alain Simon...
Where as the 'Old World' cultivated blended wines, the wines of the New World are mostly made from a single variety of grape. There is no better way to prevent being caught out on the subject of blended wines than by learning to recognize the grape varieties that make up the blends. This is the very original aim of this easy-to-understand tasting guide. A wise book, written by a journalist specializing in viticultural issues, which also contains a detachable card showing which grape varieties best accompany which dish.

Reviews - What do customers think about Single Grape Wines: How to Taste and Recognize?
A Carelessly Constructed Book Nov 13, 2006
I think the fact that the title of the book is misspelled on the spine ("Single Grape Vines") is a good indication of the overall care that went into this. The writing is sloppy, the ideas are poorly conveyed, and the same photographs are repeated over and over. There was no attempt to make a serious or useful book; it's just schlock to make a few bucks off of hurried Christmas shoppers.
