What is terroir? How do grapes become wine? What are tannins? This delightful portable guide has the answers to these questions and much more. Bernard Klem has whipped up a fun, easily digestible handbook that explains everything the novice needs to know to speak intelligently about wine at the store, restaurant, or table. From bottles and labels to the oenophile's lingo, it describes wine essentials, including: smell, taste, color, and effervescence. The left-hand side of each page features basic terminology, while the right-hand side uses more advanced language. For a tasty finale, there's practical information about matching wine with food, shopping for wine, and even what wine to bring as a guest.
 
It's the witty, wise Wine 101 that every would-be expert should have!
