Frank Reider is an experienced restaurateur and author whose budding ardor for wine began while swilling glasses of vintage Bordeaux at his friends' wine dinners in Rio de Janeiro. While working with representatives from wine distributors, Reider's taste buds met the seductive flavorings of South American spirits. The endless knowledge he acquired of Chilean and Argentinean wines was compressed into Wines of Passion, which advises wine drinkers on quality wines in one of the fastest growing markets in the world. The book’s content includes sought-after tidbits such as where to stay and eat during wine excursions, and the philosophy of specific wineries. While thumbing through Wines of Passion, connoisseurs and recreational sippers will also find ratings and prices of more than 300 wines and learn how the best grapes from various South American regions progress from winery to stem glass.
