Reviews

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.
