Overview

The Wine Lover's Apprentice: Words of Wisdom for Would-Be Oenophiles by Kathleen Bershad

The definitive book for any wine novice.



What’s the best corkscrew to use? Should I decant? How many types of glassware should I buy? Sommelier Kathleen Bershad has the answers. In The Wine Lover's Apprentice, Bershad acknowledges the importance of tossing out the rules about wine and taking a relaxed approach to storing and serving everyday bottles.



Readers will learn tricks of the trade and strategies for navigating the shelves of a retail store or ordering wine at a restaurant. The Wine Lover's Apprentice delves into the nitty-gritty details of winemaking and takes a look at the world’s major wine regions. Written in short bites, readers will easily gain a quick understanding of an area’s major grapes, the style or styles of wine, and the appellations that offer the best quality wine (or the best value). Topics include:


  • What You’re Tasting When You Taste Wine

  • Conquering the Restaurant Wine List

  • Navigating the Wine Shop

  • Serving, Sipping, and Storing

  • And More!



  • The Wine Lover's Apprentice unravels the terms you see when reading a wine review, looking at a bottle, or listening to a wine geek talk vino. By the end of this helpful guide, readers will become empowered to know what’s in a bottle, be able to make an educated guess about its flavors, and help change the culture to make drinking wine what it should be—relaxing and fun.
