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!
Easy read and very informative! Have it diplayed so friends can browe content.
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.
