Give a toast to the all-new 2009 edition of the Food & Wine Magazine’s Wine Guide and the debut of Anthony Giglio—the leading New York-based wine expert, writer, broadcaster, and educator who has completely revised and updated the book. Produced by America’s most trusted and popular publication on the pleasures of the table, Food & Wine Magazine’s Wine Guide remains the most authoritative of its kind. Reflecting the make-up of the wine market (and the layout of wine shops), the ’09 edition is divided into two major sections: Old World and New, with countries organized alphabetically in each. Giglio rates more than 1,000 of the most drinkable wines from the world’s major wine-producing regions, from the traditional giants (California, France, and Italy) to the exciting, up-and-coming winemakers of South America, Australia, Portugal, and Eastern Europe. His tasting notes are not only concise and easy to grasp, they’re in-depth, with expert assessments of a wine’s taste and qualities, plus essential information about its producer. The recommended wines cover all price ranges, but with an emphasis on ones that offer the best value for the dollar. In addition to its on-target suggestions, this edition is loaded with special features, including an invaluable section on pairing wine with food, a Bargain Wine Finder, a Wine Tasting Guide, The Year in Wine review, handy at-a-glance Vintage Charts, and fascinating sidebars by local wine experts surveying the latest trends and stars in their respective countries or regions.
