4.0 out of 5 stars Good, simplified approach to wine
After the huge success of Jamie Oliver in taking advanced cooking down to earth and explaining the joy of food in a language the rest of us understand (something great chefs have failed at for years), it was inevitable that we'd see one on wine as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skinner makes wine simple and sexy!, 7 Oct 2005
This review is from: Thirsty Work (Mitchell Beazley Drink) (Hardcover)
I love this book! Not only is it shot beautifully, but Matt Skinner has made choosing wine a joyous adventure. I found the book to be highly informative and set out in a really funky and accessible style. His passion and knowledge of wine and all it's varietals is far beyond his years. This book should be a staple on coffee tables around the country and the world. Well done Matt!
