What better time than the summer to get to read a book on wine that exposes the cheating that goes on in the whole industry. Malcolm Gluck made drinking wine accessible with "Superplonk", his yearly review of wines from 1995. He is disturbed that, over 15 years on and many popular programmes on, British consumers still think wine is more mysterious than beer, and has to cost a fortune. People serve their friends Spanish bubbly and feel guilty, even though it is likely to be a much better product than many French champagnes. In this book Malcolm rips the lid off all the tricks used by the wine world to conspire against the consumer. It is based on his twenty five years of experience as a wine writer. At last wine has found its Jeremy Clarkson!
