This new book by leading wine writer, Jonathan Ray, teaches you everything there is to know about bubbly by covering the 100 best types, and explaining the key facts and fun stories that make them so special.
There are so many sparkling wines from all over the world that there's something out there to suit every budget, taste and occasion. Wines featured in this delightfully fun book include types of Champagne, prosecco, cava, crémant, the dazzling rare and precious sparkling ice wine, and everything in between. With characteristic humor and accessibility, Jonathan takes you through the stories and qualities behind the wines and producers, and even gives recipes for some extra-special Champagne cocktails. There is also information about the right kind of glass, the varying sweetness of Champagne, and both a glossary of terms and a wine map are included.
Jonathan Ray is drinks editor of the Spectator, as well as writing on food, travel, and lifestyle for many other publications in the UK. He has written several books on wine, translated into over a dozen languages.
