“If you are new to wine; Windows on the World by Kevin Zraly is great. If you are looking for in-depth facts; Sotheby’s is hard to beat. Another great resource, if you are in the Court of Sommeliers, is the GuildSomm.”

- Paul Peterson, Head Sommelier at Bouchon Las Vegas

The Wine Bible by Karen Macneil and Windows on the World by Kevin Zraly continue to be the go-to books for gaining a solid foundation for the world of wine. Each has recently released new additions, keeping up to date with the ever-changing wine community mostly focusing on the basics of wine regions, their history, and what they are known for. Another outstanding book focusing on the science behind the vine, soil, and wine making, is Wine Science: The Application of Science in Winemaking by Jamie Goode. This is a fantastic book which presents the important facts around wine making and how they work.”
