Description from the packaging.

Brimming with unique insights of wine expert Oz Clarke, Microsoft Wine Guide helps you to select the perfect wine for every meal or occasion. Microsoft Wine Guide enriches your enjoyment of wine with descriptive tasting notes from Oz Clarke and a team of experts on more than 6,000 individual wines- from high-priced classics to many exceptional finds from around the world that fit your budget easily. You'll also find detailed entries on the world's wine regions and producers. It's your key to improving the quality of the wine you drink, and enjoying and collecting the wines that suit you best.

Find the wine you want. Use the Wine Selector to set your own criteria for choosing a wine. For example, to match your meal with an ideal wine, whether you're serving filet mignon or a plate of pasts, just a few clicks of the mouse will tell you the suggested wine style and recommend specific wines with their star rating, grape variety, producer, appellation, region, and the best vintage years.

Oz Clarke's tasting tour is a deliciously informative series of 18 videos, filled with Oz's personal tips to help you discover nuances in tasting and evaluating wines. You'll learn what to look for in particular styles- for example, how a California Cabernet may differ from a red Bordeaux.

Visit the wine country! Nearly 60 interactive, scrolling maps in the Atlas take you to the world's great wine producing regions- then let you jump directly to information about each region's geography, climate, characteristic wines, and major producers. It's a perfect way to plan a tour of vineyards or wineries!

It all begins with the grapes. In All About Wine, follow your favorite wine from grapevine to the glass. You'll get an in-depth introduction to the principal grape varieties and production methods. In Wine Tasting with Oz, you'll find a detailed discussion of the proper glass for each wine, decanting methods, and much more.

Wine Guide is hosted by Oz Clarke. Oz is internationally renowned for his formidable palate, and is a winner of the prestigious James Beard award.
