Find the Perfect Bottle of Wine Every Time...For most everyone, tasting and pairing wine can be a complex, confusing, and intimidating undertaking. Not anymore thanks to Drink Progressively. From Hadley and TJ Douglas, the wine experts and owners of Boston’s popular Urban Grape, Drink Progressively offers an easy and enjoyable method for discovering wines you’ll love and expert advice on how to pair them with your favorite dishes. Urban Grape’s “Progressive Scale”, a unique way of organizing wine from light-bodied to full-bodied, is all you need to make the puzzle pieces of wine fall into place. The lightest-bodied wines, comparable to skim milk in texture, start off the scale at 1, while the full-bodied wines, correlating to heavy cream, sit atop the scale at 10. Grasping this simple principle is the key to demystifying the challenge of food and wine pairings.

With Drink Progressively, you’ll find everything you need to select the perfect wine for any occasion, including Hadley and TJ’s favorite regions and varietals from each progressive category; what to eat (and what to avoid) with each wine type; expert hints, tips, and know-how to make you wine savvy at home, any restaurant, and in your favorite wine shop; and delicious recipe pairings from Gabriel Frasca, executive chef of Nantucket’s acclaimed Straight Wharf.

Brimming with interesting, fun, and useful wine advice, Drink Progressively is the ideal book for anyone who enjoys wine or wants to learn how.

Hadley and TJ are the dynamic husband and wife team that own and operate The Urban Grape, a popular and award-winning wine store in Boston. The store concept is simple, but revolutionary: Drink Progressively. Their system of sorting wine by its body, instead of by varietal or region, brings ease and an unexpected surprise to customers,...

Editorial Reviews

"Drink Progressively isn’t just a reshuffling of existing information, like many wine “How To” books out there. It’s unique, it’s something special, and it’s an important step, in line with so many others of late, toward making wine more accessible. If you’re interested in experimenting beyond your standard drinking wine, or concerned with learning how to match your meals with a perfect bottle, this book should be on your kitchen shelf—it’s on mine!"  -- Terroirist.com
