Mark Oldman maps it all out for you in Brave New World of Wine (Norton).

He offers points of reference so can feel comfortable buying or ordering wine wherever they come from and whatever grape (varietal) they are made of.

Mark's light touch and sense of humor makes you feel like you're sitting home with your slippers on and fire in the chimney.
