Since its first edition in 1985, his Complete Wine Course has been revised every year. It has not only become the best-selling wine books with a sales volume of more than 3 million copies, but also become a necessary guide for wine lovers and collectors around the world.

For more than 30 years, Zraly has been practicing in the forefront of wine planting, brewing and cellaring, only revising the 2010 edition of this book, that is, he visited more than 80 wine producing regions around the world and tasted more than 5000 bottles of wine from 2008 to 2009.

Practicality: In the past 20 years, the endless emerging wine producing countries and various styles of wine make it more and more difficult to purchase and collect wine.

Based on more than 30 years of research, personal visits and first-hand tasting information, a cost-effective wine list of “daily drinking”, “weekly drinking”, “monthly drinking” and “annual drinking” with stable quality and withstanding repeated tasting was listed for wine lovers, as well as hot spots and potential vintages and grape varieties for wine collectors.

Valuable: Kevin Zraly has always been committed to finding the most cost-effective wines. He believes that although the wines of top wineries are valuable, the appreciation space and the taste cost performance ratio are not necessarily the best.

Smart wine lovers and collectors can find wines worth $50 at $20, and wines worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars at $50-100! This book has collected a large number of such super value wines for wine lovers, including a large number of new production areas, new brands and new wine funds.
