There is still a lot of mystery, ignorance and fear about wine. Some of it is no doubt still maintained by those with various vested interests. This can act as a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy as the uncertain become even more uncertain about the strange language employed, the wide range of prices and the elitist air that still follows wine about.

All of this for what is effectively a bottle of coloured, flavoured liquid. Maybe this book will help more people get a foothold on the wine ladder

Great quick overview to understand wine. I learned that I mostly like blends, wonder why? I liked the exercises at the end of each chapter that help you to understand win differences better. Thanks Goodreads and Wineology Publishing... I was a First Reads Goodreads winner.

I loved it! I was really expecting more of a reference book, but it turned into a legitimately learning experience. It feels like I'm more than qualified to spout off a mini lesson when I drink wine with my friends :)

Great Wine Read. Many points on wine that are helpful.
What I agree with most is when Len said "the more you discover about wine the more there is to know"

I was born in an Italian section of Brooklyn, N.Y. and raised in a middle-class, blue-collar New York City "bedroom community" on suburban Long Island. Although a one-gallon jug of red wine was a permanent fixture in the refrigerator, my neighborho ...more
