From the Publisher
From "one of the wine world's most popular voices" (USA
Today), a newly updated edition of her by-now classic
introduction to wine, GREAT WINE MADE SIMPLE: Straight Talk
from a Master Sommelier, reflects up-to-the minute wine
trends, including the burgeoning popularity of the Shiraz grape,
new flavor maps, and much, much more.
First published in 2000, Great Wine Made Simple
established Andrea Immer Robinson as America's favorite wine
writer. Avoiding the traditional and confusingly vague wine
language of "bouquet" and "nose," and instead discussing wine in
commonsense terms, the book launched Andrea's career as a wine
authority without pretense.
Now, thoroughly revised, Great Wine Made Simple lives up
to its title by making selecting and enjoying wine truly simple.
With Andrea Immer Robinson as your guide, you will never again have
to fear pricey bottles that don't deliver, snobby wine waiters,
foreign terminology, or encyclopedic restaurant wine lists. You'll
be able to buy or order wine with confidence--and get just the wine
you want--by learning how the "Big Six" basic styles (which
comprise 80 percent of today's top selling wines) taste and how to
read any wine label. Ten new flavor maps show what tastes you can
expect from climates around the world.
Andrea Immer Robinson genuinely knows more about wine than most
wine lovers could ever hope to learn. But she doesn't believe that
you have to join a stuffy, exclusive wine-tasting set, or study a
lot, to become a savvy wine buyer. Unlike other wine guides,
Great Wine Made Simple makes it easy to master the ins and
outs of choosing a wine that you and your guests will love-on any
In her down-to-earth style, Andrea guides you through
follow-along-at-home wine tastings that are easy, fun, and
affordable, and even suggests a milk tasting for understanding
variations in wine-body style. Building on this foundation, she
covers the rest of the wine landscape with her inimitable style,
candor, and humor, from classic regions to new tastes, plus a bevy
of practical issues like wine gear and proper storage. A refreshing
blend of in-depth knowledge and accessibility, Great Wine Made
Simple is a welcome resource for those who are intrigued by
wine but don't know where to start.
