Book Description

13 Oct 2005
Defining the new wine generation, this guide is unashamedly aimed at "The Urban Wine-drinker" - who enjoys drinking wine and wants the facts without the fluff. The Juice 2006 offers a fresh new approach to buying wine and is compiled by the world's hippest new wine writer. Divided into topical chapters the book includes The Juice Awards, a guide to grapes and wine jargon and The Hot 100 which groups the wines into top 25 lists by occasion. Based on a weekly list of wines which Matt circulates by email the book features special photography and a bright, stylish design making it the most accessible wine guide available.

After 13 years of living and breathing vino there aren't many
things that Matt Skinner doesn't know about the stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars nice idea, but could have more wine. 24 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
I saw this book and thought I should give it a go as there aren't many young people that write about wine. To be honest I thought The Juice 2007 was ok, but many of the wines it suggest are only available from specialist retailers so I doubt that many people will actually be able to buy the wines suggested in this book.

Not great, but a decent enough stocking filler.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fancy pictures don't make a wine guide! 27 Nov 2005
Format:Paperback
As a an eager, young, novice wine enthusiast I was keen to see what Matt Skinners guide would be like, after all we all know that Matt is sponsored by Jamie Oliver and Jamie's people have high hopes for Matt. But, and this is a big BUT, this book is a waste of time as a wine guide - Matthew Jukes has a book out called the 'WINE LIST' which is much better. There are loads of pictures of wine bottles and shots of Matt apparently looking cool, but very little that is really helpful about buying wine. Its going to take more than long hair and a pair of trainers for Matt Skinner appeal to the so called 'urban wine drinker'. Matt is the Jamie Cullum of wine!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad but a little lightweight. 12 Feb 2007
By KP.
Format:Paperback
I get bought loads of 'winey' stuff as I am into wine, so I was quite pleased to get this book. As a guide it works well enough, although I feel that it should feature 200 or so wines rather than the 100 it concentrates on. The style itself is not bad but I get the impression that this wine guide is about showing that wine is cool and fun and not enough time is spent reviewing more wines. Many of the wines reviewed are a bit pricey too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time, style over content :-( 6 Dec 2005
By Cleo
Format:Paperback
Its really hard not to be cynical about Matt Skinner but I am afraid I have to be. I saw him at a wine tasting and thought I would give him a chance and get his guide. Waste of time though. Its just pictures, but nothing that is helpful or worth reading. I am sure that the publishers want to make wine cool but just because Mr Skinner wears jeans and has scruffy hair doesn't mean that wine should be 'hip', and he does not have enough charisma or charm. Sorry, but there are much better wine guides around.
