The Wine World Through a Personal Lense 6 April 2010
By Whosonfirst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book represents a delightful encyclopedia of possible wine tours and wine tastings. For several decades, the author has toured much of the international wine world. During these journeys, he has sampled wines not only from the most renowned wine regions of the world but also, as the title suggests, from many less well-known but interesting touring and tasting destinations ranging from Tasmania to Texas and beyond. His narrative and guidance for touring is particularly strong on the areas he knows best through extensive personal experience such as Austria, but he has much to offer those who are considering wine tasting tours in Australia and New Zealand, for example. All in all, he levels his discerning eye and uses his discriminating taste buds to guide the reader through a vast array of wines, wineries, and wine countries with a sense of perspective and humor.
Entertainig read while learning about wines around the world. 6 Feb. 2010
By Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very well written. Easy to read and follow. There are a lot of interesting "side stories" that make the different wine specific information come into focus with simple grace. You might want to take notes as you read to try some of the wines you have never had (or, even heard of). All in all, an excellent read, not just for enjoyment; but, also, a great primer for different wines around the world. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a wine lover, as well as anyone who drinks an occasional glass. Geography, history, travel, humor, wine and grape education, and more. This book has it all. Gee, if you can talk about Kansas without concentrating on basketball and Kenya without a focus on long distance running, you must have something going fo you.
Enjoyed the Book, Enjoyed the Wine 14 Jan. 2010
By Sunfish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kansas to Kenya is a charming book. It puts wine snobs on notice that there are fun ways to become knowledgeable about wine. The chapter on funny names and crazy colors was particularly entertaining. I enjoyed traveling the famous and not so famous wine roads of the world with the author and his wife. Perhaps he will write an equally enjoyable travel book.
