In How to Love Wine, New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov examines why the American wine culture produces anxiety and suggests how readers can fearlessly develop a sense of discovery and wonder as they explore and enjoy the diversity and complexity of the world of wine. With warmth, candor, and intelligent authority, Asimov interweaves his professional knowledge and insights with engaging personal stories of his lifelong love affair with wine. In a direct, down-to-earth manner, Asimov discusses favorite vineyards, wine's singular personalities, the flaws of wine criticism, and current wine issues.

Throughout, he incorporates in-depth discussions of beautiful wines, both easy to find and rare, and pays special attention to those that have been particularly meaningful to him. Thought-provoking and enjoyable, How to Love Wine will transform readers into true wine lovers.

Editorial Reviews

“Wine fanatics, or those angling for entry to the world of wine, will find comfort in…Asimov’s down–to–earth discussion of loving wine. Moreover, what he argues is most essential for a relationship with wine, and what’s most refreshing to read, is an approach free of anxiety and open to love.”
