First Reads Review - Wineocology by Caitlin Stansbury

All right, here we go. I won this through the Goodreads First Reads program, and there are few things as good as getting a good book for free. And this is a good wine book. I have read other books on wine, and they have largely been a bit dry (pun intended!).

A different kind of wine book that takes an educational approach to make any wine drinker a better educated and more aware wine drinker.

I appreciated the writing style. Very practical advice.
