Good Better Best Wines (March 18, 2010)

book review
by Sheila Swerling-Puritt

Good Better Best Wines by Carolyn Evans Hammond. Alpha member of Penguin Group (USA) Inc. 256 pages, ISBN 978-1-59257-977-8. $16 in Canada and $12.95 in the US, soft covers. Available at all major bookstores, including online at Amazon. Publication Date: April 6, 2010.

Carolyn Evans Hammond is a journalist and qualified sommelier who earned critical acclaim for her first book, 1000 Best Wine Secrets. Now she has produced a good resource book containing commentary on the wines she chooses as well as useful information on storage, serving, and ageing. Better than that, she's made our selection of affordable wines easy!

Arriving at a time when consumers are looking for reliable quality wines at economy prices, this book is a timely and unique guide, and is the first ever to rank popular big-brand wines. With wonderful humor, Evans Hammond covers the basics and more for white wines, red wines, rosé and sparking wines, bargain wines, dessert wines, and party wines. The focus is on perceived value, and the author understands that some 97% of us are looking to enjoy wines priced under US$15. While Good Better Best Wines is targeted at a US audience, many if not most of the bottlings chosen for this book are widely available in Canada.
