If you've ever asked your host, 'This white wine is lovely but do you have any real wines?' then this is the wine guide for you. Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh believe that most people buy wine guides for the sections on red wine, and that it's a trickier area to navigate. So this is the only guide of its kind in Australia: one for those wanting to know the best quality and best value red wines available. Mattinson and Walsh share their knowledge in expert tasting notes on more than 1000 red wines, including more than 500 new releases across all prices and styles. Each is rated on price, value for money and investment potential, with notes on past vintages. With wine-drinkers becoming both more environmentally and economically conscious, Campbell and Gary have included a new chapter on organic and biodynamic reds, and have focused more intensively on the best buys on the market. Cheap wines can be great wines, as long as you know what to look for, and with the 'top 100 wines at $20 or less' section, you'll be armed with all you need to know. For only $26.99 The Big Red Wine Book is the perfect gift for both wine buffs and novices - anyone with a love for a good red drop.

Campbell Mattinson won the Best Australian Sports Writing Award in 1996, an Independent Young Writer of the Year Award in 1995, and the prestigious NSW Wine Press Club Wine Communicator Award in both 2005 and 2007. He wrote Why the French Hate Us and the first edition of The Big Red Wine Book and has written for The Bulletin, Gourmet Traveller WINE, Decanter, and Australian Table. Gary Walsh was the publisher of the successful online wine review site Winorama until he joined The Wine Front as its co-publisher. He's the former wine editor for Inside Out magazine and believes in reviewing wine with a light heart and a firm hand. Twenty years of obsessive wine tasting and drinking, he thinks, gives him some sort of excuse for being published.
