The best on wine from the New York Times! The newspaper of record has always showcased the writing of some of the world's most respected wine experts, and these 125 articles from its archives feature such esteemed names as Eric Asimov, Frank Prial, Florence Fabricant, and R. W. Apple Jr. They cover everything from corkscrews and winespeak to pairing wine with food, wines from the Continent and South of the Border, and restaurant experiences. This is the ideal gift book for wine lovers.

Howard G. Goldberg was an editor at the New York Times from 1970 to 2004. He spent 23 years at the Op-Ed page, where he was senior editor. He began contributing wine articles in the mid-1980s, and, in 1987, wrote the Wine Talk column for a period. In the 1990s he developed Wine Under $20, a feature published on Sundays for many years, and Long Island Vines, which still appears in the Long Island pages on Sundays.

Eric Asimov has been chief wine critic at the New York Times since 2004. Asimov created the $25 and Under restaurant reviews and wrote them through 2004. He was editor of the Living section from 1991 to 1994 and editor of Styles of the Times from 1994 to 1995. His book How to Love Wine is to be published in 2012.

"No need to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy this book. Written by 29 different authors, it reads like a good collection of short stories. This title is suitable for anyone wishing to learn more about wine but sophisticated enough for aficionados. A good choice for readers who want more information about the culture and context of wine consumption, delivered in an engaging format." —Library Journal
