This is just the kind of book I've been waiting for!! A perfect introduction to all of the "how-to's" of wine. I love the menus for different flights I can taste-test with friends in order to better understand how to articulate flavors and nuances of my favorite wines. This book is a perfect mix of both learning the fundamentals and introducing me to new varietals and ways to expand my comfort zones. Well done!

I loved, absolutely loved the feel of this book. Easy to read. Quick read. Very informative. A non-wine drinker would love this book as a gift. It's very educational too. Not boring. the color. the aroma. where the wine was made. All make a great book, which Melanie Wagner definitely did so... Check it out! you'll be very pleased. Would make an awesome Christmas gift!

Easy to understand and funny! I feel as though I emerged much smarter. A great book for beginner-intermediate wine lovers.
