Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great way to learn about wine I am a wine enthusiast and of all the wine books I have read, I found this one to be particularly helpful and easy to understand. The book contains DIY wine tastings in order to learn the concepts taught and the book is not bogged down by unnecessary facts and details that are not useful for a beginner.

Editorial Reviews

"[F]ull of eye-catching visuals and a lot of fun exercises (e.g., comparing sweetness levels in wine or varying shades of red wines) but it also contains plenty of that more structured information, such as facts on countries and grapes." – The Wall Street Journal "[P]erhaps the best wine basics book I've seen to date…[author] Marnie [Old] gets that detailed and crowded are NOT interchangeable, and proves it with her stunning, unpretentious graphics." – Anthony Dias Blue, James Beard Award Winner and Editor-in-chief of Tasting Table
