I'd say it depends on the level of knowledge you have. The Oxford Wine Companion is like an encyclopedia, really complete, but for a beginner (not saying you are one), I think the Wine Bible is a great start.
That's quite a good rec. The Wine Bible certainly makes for an easier read than the Companion. The Companion is dense and incredibly thorough which might be daunting if that's not what you're looking for
