More About This Book

Overview

Master of Wine and Chef Tim Hanni MW was hailed as the Wine Antisnob by the Wall Street Journal for his work in understanding consumer wine preferences and revolutionary concepts for wine and food pairing. This introductory volume for The New Wine Fundamentals wine education program is based on two decades of research by the author and many research colleagues.

"Why You Like the Wines You Like; changing the way the world thinks about wine" introduces the physiological and psychological factors that shape personal wine preferences. It offers empowerment to wine drinkers at all levels and is a truly game-changing approach to the subject of the enjoyment of wine and wine with food.

Why You Like the Wine You Like also looks at the countless myths and lore associated with wine and provides insights and an information for anyone interested in wine history.

Hanni's wine and food principles were adopted last year and taught as part of the Advanced Diploma curriculum for the Wine & Spirits Educational Trust. "Wine and food pairing is has become an imaginary and metaphorical exercise with little basis in reality," Hanni says. "I am on a mission to have everyone pair wines with the diner, not the dinner."

"I have spent many hours with Tim wrestling with some of his ideas while they were still in the formative stage. It was both an exhilarating and an exhaustive experience. With a broad and deep knowledge of wine and food history as well as their complexities, he is not afraid to challenge the way things are done and suggest alternatives. He's not dogmatic in his beliefs, but he demands that conventional thinkers think again. You may not agree with all his conclusions, but I promise he will make you think." George Taber, author of the bestseller The Judgment of Paris and A Guide to Bargain Wines and former correspondent and editor for Time magazine
