Red & White

Author: Clarke, Oz

Description: Red and White is a very personal account of Oz Clarke's interaction with the whole world of wine throughout his adult life - a period when that world has changed beyond all recognition - which takes it well beyond the usual run of authoritative wine reference tomes, and, by dint of the author's wit & personality beyond any wine autobiography, and makes it a crossover read for anyone vaguely interested in wine; and a unique treasure trove - based on peerless qualifications - of observations, explanations, suggestions and evaluations of wine regions, wine styles and individual wines and wine producers, which will be gold dust to wine lovers everywhere. This is not a reference book, but its readers will refer to it endlessly for insight and information. The fact that it is littered with amusing stories and anecdotes makes it as readable as a celebrity autobiography, which it isn't - except incidentally. Over the last forty years there have only been a tiny handful of wine writers of global renown: Hugh Johnson, Robert Parker, Michael Broadbent, Jancis Robinson and Oz Clarke; and of these Oz has by far the broadest reach across the board - millions of readers, TV viewers, wine producers, wine merchants & sommeliers. He is loved by wine folk and the general public alike. Whether it's a table of thirty-somethings in a trendy restaurant in London, a gang of Japanese sommeliers at Bordeaux's famous wine show Vinexpo, hard-bitten judges at wine shows in Australia, wine educators from wine schools across the USA, or winemakers in every wine growing region of the world, Oz is lionised, his views canvassed, his advice sought, his palate trusted and respected. If you are only going to read one wine book in your life, this is the one you must read - and you will never regret it.
