Wine is surrounded by such mystique that choosing one can seem intimidating. This friendly, clearly organized and jargon-free guide shows how easy it can be. It introduces ten wine styles, from crisp whites to full-bodied reds, offers simple rules to remember, and describes the world's main wine-growing regions. Packed with charts, pictograms, at-a-glance guides, and how-to and top-ten lists, it recommends more than 600 wines for every budget.

Review:

How to "overcome your paralyzing fear of the world of wine" stands as Cole's basic principle in this gorgeous, highly informative guide that ranges in subject areas from the essential wine "styles" (including "crisp, lean whites" and "rich, full-bodied reds") and help in buying and serving. The text is presented, for the most part, in easy-on-the-eye chart format.--Brad Hooper"BOOKLIST Recommended Wine Books" (10/01/2013)

A terrific guide for buying wine that strips away the intimidation and pomposity, making it easier for everyday consumers to navigate a wine shop or the wine section of a grocery store with confidence.... One of the most-attractive aspects of Complete Wine Selector is its easy-to-navigate design, which breaks down information into easy to scan boxes and visual icons. That only adds to the unstuffy feel, emphasizing that wine is something that should be enjoyed, and that picking the right bottle isn't something to dread.--Grant Butler"Oregon Live" (12/03/2013)

The realm of the wine primer is often a dicey one, but Katherine Cole, wine columnist for the Oregonian, handles it with aplomb... A particularly charming and detailed approach to the challenging task of wine education.--Jon Bonne"San Francisco Gate" (11/29/2013)

The most useful wine book I've seen in ages.--Laurie Daniel"San Jose Mercury News" (12/02/2013)

Gosh, it sure does deliver on its promise to be complete. There is just so much useful and interesting information packed in these 250-plus pages.--Mike Veseth"Wine Economist" (10/24/2013)

You don't have to take a sommelier course to make good choices in your wine selection.--Terry Peters"North Shore News" (01/05/2014)

Not another wine primer, I thought when I picked up Katherine Cole's Complete Wine Selector. Yet I was immediately bowled over by how Cole, wine columnist for the Oregonian newspaper and author of Voodoo Vintners, has figured out a new way to present a familiar topic. By using Web publishing techniques -- heavy use of infographics and short snippets of text--she manages to convey an impressive amount of information on a single page.... Cole has created an essential reference for novice and aficionado alike.--Dave McIntyre"Washington Post Best Wine Books" (12/11/2013)

Cole manages to take on the wide world of wine both insightfully and helpfully... Her tips on pairings and bargain buys, coupled with informative takes on the winemaking process at large, make for an effective book. Both wine aficionados and novices can find something to admire... Of course, it would take multiple volumes to tackle it all, but Cole has put together a fairly compact and organized account... Overall, Complete Wine Selector is a worthwhile buy. The wide array of wine coverage creates mass appeal, especially for those who are used to dauntingly large wine stacks at grocery stores, restaurants or bottle shops... Credit Cole for the book's accessibility... It's imperative we recognize the monumental task at hand and simply enjoy what she has covered intelligently, which is quite a lot, even in the gaping world of wine .--Mark Stock"Oregon Wine Press" (11/01/2013)

Katherine Cole has successfully blown many of the cobwebs from the dusty old world of wine... simply second to none.--Jamie Drummond, Director of Programs/Editor"Good Food Revolution" (12/06/2013)

(Best Wine Books for Beginners) Katherine brings a fresh and different approach to understanding wines, which is definitely welcomed by beginners. Instead of classifying wines by their region, she classifies wines by their style. Her aim is to simplify the complexity involved with wine selection, storage, and serving style, and reduce the intimidation associated with the vinous world... Her book also dwells on wine navigation tips, with information about the best vendors and websites for purchasing wines.--Priya Johnson"Buzzle.com" (12/09/2013)
