I don't drink either. Hundreds of books on wine and dozens of  
Wine, wine trade, economics of wines, history, cooking with wine, etc.
The Oxford Companion to Wine, 3rd Edition by Jancis Robinson comes to  
mind. As does World Atlas of Wine by Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson.
Those are good reference volumes to start with.
