Wine For Dummies, Mini Edition 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
Gregory Doty More than 1 year ago
This is a perfect primer on drinking and enjoying wine, from the grapes, to the store to your glass. Written by two wine lovers with the experience and credentials to know what they're writing about! And at 99 cents, the price to information ratio makes this a better buy than a box of Dom for a buck. Pair this book with The Wine Trials 2011 and you're on your way to being a world class eonophile on a bargain budget.
