Halfaglass, aka James Nevison and Kenji Hodgson, was formed in response to the realization that no one was "talking wine" to twenty-somethings in a way that seemed relevant to their lifestyles. To create this book, James and Kenji travelled the globe, tasted copious amounts of wine, and researched and interviewed endlessly. The result is an upbeat guide to wine filled with entertaining stories and information on essential topics such as grape varietals, winemaking, and wine regions. Have a Glass sheds the complicated terminology and pretensions that have alienated younger wine drinkers, and helps readers to better understand and enjoy wine.

With anecdotes and attitude, this book explores the mythology and history of wine from the Old World to the New, from Champagne to Chardonnay, and from Merlot to Muscadet. Throughout, the focus is on using wine to create and enhance an experience, whether it is finding the perfect wine to accompany a meal or ordering with confidence in a restaurant. For those new to wine, and those who want to know the latest trends in wine, Have a Glass is essential reading.

About the Author

Kenji Hodgson''s father first sparked his interest in wine, and Kenji''s ensuing passion for the grape has prompted many pursuits, including an epic, endurance-testing two weeks at the 2002 harvest in Pouilly-Fuissé, France. He has an Advanced Certificate from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust of London and admits to "a soft spot for wines of the Old World, despite my contemporary disposition."

James Nevison found "The Good Life"--as defined by the harmonious union of wine, food, and friends-while living in Barcelona, Spain. After studying commerce at the University of British Columbia, he gained certification from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust of London. His subsequent wayfaring has taken him around the world to taste the wine of six wine-producing continents.
