This has completely changed the way I look at a wine list in a restaurant. I now look forward to experimenting with different varieties instead of going to my same olds. Perfect holiday gift for anyone who enjoys food and wine.

I have always been a bit timid when it comes to wine. But, alas, Katherine Cole's newest book is a great way to quickly gain confidence when it comes to knowing your wine. I highly recommend it!!
