The sommellerie of reference, the wine and the wines at the restaurant << Back


The new book by Paul Brunet finally brings together all the useful knowledge about wine in a single volume that will be released in May 2019.

The Sommellerie de Référence presents the entire world of wine in one volume. To produce this book, the author has assembled his two best-sellers (130,000 copies sold) Wine and Wines and Wine and foreign wines,  in an expanded and enriched edition.

This complete book, covers all stages of production, from vine to table, French wines, with a detailed presentation of the 22 most important vineyards, but also foreign wines with more than 66 countries presented. A complete chapter is reserved for the agreements between food and wine. Exhaustive and practical, the book also deals with a professional approach of the sommellerie spirits and liqueurs, the other drinks presented to the restaurant as well as the supply, the storage and the marketing.

This new edition is enriched with new didactic tools in the form of cover flaps: mnemonic means, tasting stages, tips for reading a label, as well as two very beautiful maps of the wine regions of Europe and the world.
