The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia

Hello! I am a college student studying for my certified somm. My school library has the 2001 addition, and as a student between buying wine to study and signing up for the classes one of these books is really expensive. How important is it that I have the newest addition?

  • The basic stuff you need for Certified (Bordeaux, Burgundy, etc.) hasn't changed too much. The rest you can fill in with online sources like the Guild, Wine Searcher, etc. I always give my old copy away when a new addition comes out. Probably not the wisest move in retrospect.
