Very informative book!
on 17 April 2013
Bought it as a present - and it went down really well. Delightfully easy to read - so forget all the old tomes written for prospective 'wine-bores'! This is amusing, informative and really helpful in roughly equal measures.
That said, I suppose the real decider for a wine book is - does it help you pick a wine? Well, yes it does, and it has led us out of our comfort zone and into some really interesting new winey finds. If bluffing as a 'wine-buff' is your thing, I think there's plenty here to get your teeth into too. All in all, it's good all rounder - and how often do you read a book that tells you a lot AND gives you a good old chuckle too?
If you like wine, want to know more about it, or simply find out what-goes-with-what - you can't do much better than read this book.
