Overview

The secret to this guide's success is that it encourages readers to trust their own palates, rather than simply accept the judgement of "experts."

Wine expert Andrew Sharp conveys vital technical information about the creation of wine and the physiology of taste and smell clearly, with delightful touches of humour.

Winetaster's Secrets covers topics that many other winetasting guides fail to address, such as the effects of aging on the palate, how scoring systems work, and the special techniques for tasting and evaluating unusual varieties of wine such as icewine and "burnt" wine (brandy).

Andrew Sharp was the founder/president of InterVin International, a major annual international wine competition. He was a dedicated wine educator who lectured extensively across North America.
