Which Wine Style Matches Your Taste?

Who knows more about great wine than you? No one—when it comes to what wines will actually be "great" to your taste. Wine labels and recommendations can help you make choices, but ultimately you are the best judge of the right wines for you.

Wine Style classifies and describes wines by different tastes, or styles—including four for red wines and four for whites—to make it easier for you to identify wines you like. You don't have to memorize the details of wine regions and grape varieties or master wine vocabulary to select a good bottle of wine—though if you want to delve that deeply, this book is a great starting place. Wine Style inspires and empowers you to explore wine with an adventurous spirit and to discover wines that you enjoy. Cheers!

"Not only do we get the usual erudition and insight on the glory and beauty of wine from Mary and Ed, but in this inspired volume we get profound expertise in everyday terms. Drinking and learning about wine is stimulating and fun. Reading Wine Style is more than mouth-watering; it gets all the senses excited."
—Charlie Trotter

"Finally, a (soon-to-be) grape-stained guide that speaks to wine lovers in their native tongue: Taste! In penning Wine Style, Mary Ewing-Mulligan and Ed McCarthy have crafted a book for everyone —and anyone—who ever felt frustrated connecting their palate preferences to a pleasing bottle of vino."
—Joshua Wesson, Co-founder/Chairman of Best Cellars
