A Window on the Wine World

Kevin Zraly just released the 25th anniversary edition of the companion book for his Windows on the World Wine School course. I got a reader's copy a few months ago, and it's great--filled with interesting notes and comments in the margin, new and expanded sections on the world's wine regions, and a poignant chapter about what September 11 meant for Windows on the World, its employees and Zraly personally.

A few months ago, I had the chance to dine with and interview Zraly for an upcoming article in Wine Enthusiast. It was so amazing to have the opportunity to sit down and chat with the man who influenced my decision to enter the wine business (I took his course in the spring of 2001 when it was still held at the WTC.)

This book is a must have for any wine lover.
