A superlative wine for every day of the year—is that so much to ask? As the French say, pas du tout. With The World’s Greatest Wines, two of the wine world’s most respected authorities, Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve, present a calendar’s worth of wines that, in their expert judgment, every wine lover will want to experience. Longtime editors of France’s top wine guide, La Revue du Vin de France, Bettane and Desseauve have an unsurpassed knowledge of their home nation’s wines. But here they broaden their sights, embracing an array of fine wines—red and white, sparkling and still, dry and sweet—from all over the globe. Every major kind of wine and wine-growing region is represented on the author’s meticulously chosen list—from the cabernets of California, to the malbecs of Argentina, to the sauvignon blancs of New Zealand, to the rieslings of Germany’s Mosel region.
Much more than just a catalog of producers and labels, the book contains a detailed profile of each of the wine estates selected, notes on the recent vintages the authors prefer, and a series of spectacular images of some of the world’s most renowned vineyards and wineries.

In addition to the vineyard's name, wine is generaly categorized by two different categories: its region, or where it was produced, and the type of grape it's made from. For example, the red wine Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is made with Montepulciano grapes and comes from the Abruzzo region of Italy. Napa Valley Chardonnay is made from Chardonnay grapes and comes from- you guessed it- the Napa Valley region of California.
