    Informing and a Joy to Read!

    I was vacationing on Sanibel Island during Christmas 1999 when I saw Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher doing a wine segment for Martha Stewart's show. This husband and wife team were an absolute delight to watch and listen to as they discussed wine in a simple and down to earth manner. I purchased their book that very day and read it from cover to cover. I now read their column, 'Tastings', in the Wall Street Journal's Weekender edition without fail.

    Bullish Advice on Wine

    For people seeking good basic information about tasting and buying wine, I highly recommend The Wall Street Journal Guide to Wine. Written by The Wall Street Journal's regular wine columnists, Dorothy J. Gaiter and John Brecher, the book offers straightforward, friendly advice on a wide range of topics, including tips for visiting wineries. You can also find Dorothy and John on the web at wine.wsj.com.

    if you buy just one wine book get this one

    This is the opposite of snooty and a real celebration of pouring, tasting, enjoying and sharing wine. The down-to-earth tone is a refreshing change from most wine writing and isn't above ho-hum topics like what to take as a gift wine or what price is right to pay for a certain bottle. They're terrific - buy this book.
