Go to any supermarket and you're bombarded with wine industry hype and cut-price offers, making it infuriatingly difficult to find bottles that represent true value for money. Joe Wadsack's aim is simple: to empower you to make informed buying decisions and find the wines you like to drink. His book is organised by classic wine style, such as white Burgundy, Aussie Shiraz and Bordeaux. He reveals a selection of the best bargains in each category and then unearths the best 'lookalikes' - real treasures from lesser-known producers that deliver on flavour, quality and of course, price. This way you can venture slowly out of your comfort zone and discover new wines that are similar to your favourite. This easy-to-use guide equips you with all the buying tips you need to navigate the wine aisle with ease.
Joe Wadsack is Richard and Judy's wine expert and co-author of the Richard & Judy Wine Guide. He also appears each month as The Wright Stuff's wine expert, guiding the viewer to the month's best buys, and has presented his own programme, Great Wine Walks, for UKTV Food. Joe studied wine making in Bordeaux and has worked as a wine buyer for a number of leading supermarkets.
