From the Publisher

IT STANDS TO REASON THAT IF OUR FOODS ARE NOW LIGHTER AND MORE DYNAMIC, OUR WINES SHOULD BE ALSO.
A longtime champion of the victimized wine consumer, Willie Gluckstern debunks the myths and misinformation surrounding the (allegedly) complex subject of wine. His straightforward advice includes:
  • The wines that go BEST with food -- and why.
  • A cure for label worship: "There are just as many lousy $60 bottles as $3.99 bottles."
  • How to avoid getting ripped off in stores and restaurants.
  • How to choose a great wineshop: "Do they know where Italy is?"
  • Dreary housekeeping tips, such as storage, decanting, saving opened wine, and "that sulfite thing."
    Plus, the straight poop on oak, "the MSG of wine," a few well-chosen words for greedy restaurants and retailers ("Those bastards!"), and an unprecedented expose of mass-market Champagne, including how to find the good stuff by cracking the secret label code.
    Irreverent, informative, and controversial, The Wine Avenger is indispensable for beginners as well as enthusiasts.

Seller Comments:

A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Gluckstern does not give amateurs a brief, fundamental course in wine appreciation; for that, pick up Mary E. Mulligan's Wine for Dummies (IDG, 1995) or shorter pieces by authorities like Matt Kramer. Instead, his book belongs in the company of Leslie Brenner's Fear of Wine, offering solace to the intimidated beginner though it's more acerbic. The purchasing director for a popular New York City wine store, Nancy's Wines, Gluckstern takes extreme positions that are both the guide's strength and its weakness. For instance, he justly reprimands those mainstream critics who focus on too narrow an audience but then diminishes his credibility with polemic (e.g., while qualified "wine experts" these days agree that chardonnays have been over-oaked, his tone completely dismisses this grape, which does produce some very graceful wines). Gluckstern gives more (deserved) attention to the virtues of German wines and provides excellent advice on food and wine matching. Not a required purchase for substantial wine collections, but it's good to have someone advocating for the novice.
