Good Wine Books
I've made a very short list of some of the best books available for the wine lover. These are widely available.

World Atlas of Wine
by Hugh Johnson
A classic, unpretentious reference resource. A must have in any wine lovers library.


Windows on the World Complete Wine Course
by Kevin Zraly
Streamlined information about the basic and intermediate levels of wine. Updated yearly so be sure to get the latest.


Wine for Dummies (2nd edition)
by Ed McCarthy, Mary Ewing-Mulligan, Piero Antinori
Very good presentation for beginners and also for those much further along.


Jancis Robinson's Wine Course
by Jancis Robinson
Complete well laid out book for learning about wine in a logical fashion.


You may also want to take a look at The Essential Wine Tasting Guide by Glen Green.
This is a handy reference to have on you at tastings.

Two other books, "The Complete Napa Valley Wine Tour Book" and "Pairing Food And Wine...A Magical Relationship" written by Steve Sands are available from the author's web sites. I have not had the opportunity to review these books but they could be worth checking out.
