This new book by leading wine writer, Jonathan Ray, teaches you everything there is to know about fizz by covering the 100 best types, and explaining the key facts so that you can become a bubbly expert.
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, crmant, the dazzling rare and precious sparkling ice wine, and everything in between. With characteristic humour 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.
And if you can't afford traditional bubbles, don't worry. Prosecco is the new Champagne! But get there quick - it's become so popular in recent times that supplies of it are in danger of running out...
