Don't know your amontillado from your amoroso? Can't say who declared cabernet sauvignon the only variety to be tolerated in heaven? Can't list the movers and shakers in the Australian wine landscape today? Never fear, James Halliday, Australia's foremost wine writer, has compiled all the answers.

The Australian Wine Encyclopedia is the definitive guide to all things wine in Australia, from someone who has immersed himself in the topic his whole life. From Abbey Creek Vineyard all the way to zinfandel, James gives detailed explanations of regions, personalities, grape varieties, winemaking processes and terms used in discussing wines. Written with his trademark vigour and contagious curiosity about what makes wine tick, The Australian Wine Enclycopedia is a must for all lovers of wine, from newcomers to experts.
