First Reads Review - Wineocology by Caitlin Stansbury

Shines like a fine wine! This book is spectacular and what sets it apart from all other books in this genre, the writing. For example this little taste of the writing for you to enjoy:

This book will surely capture the attention of people, young and old alike. Especially those just beginning to learn about the world of wine. It's a new, fresh and hip way to understand it all. What I liked about this book is that you learn without feeling like you've just sat down and read a text book. The author knows how to keep your interest.

A different kind of wine book that takes an educational approach to make any wine drinker a better educated and more aware wine drinker. By using all of the senses that every individual uses on a daily basis, Stansbury brings wine to the people to allow for everyone to learn a new way to approach wine and enjoy it at a fuller level.
