Great Beginners Book

by Dawne on Nov 4, 2008

My husband and I are beginning wine enthuiasts and recently went to New York state for a wine testing vacation. Our heads were spinning with all of the grape varieties and wine selections that we were hearing. All of the information was muddled together and made no sense until we began reading The Wine Bible as we drove from one winery to another. Karen MacNeil explains the differences between whites and reds as well as the grape, and therefore wine, varieites within each of the whites and reds. Shje suggested that beginners choose one type of wine to sample at each winery in order to begin to taste the differences between the same wine. By the end of our trip everything began to fall into place and we are now on our way to learning about wine in a more educated way. Very informative and helpful.


red or white from where with what ?

Red or white from where with what ? Karen has done her research ! This book is excellent, covering wines from Napa to New Zealand. She even demystifies the art of pairing food with wines. From the soil of the vineyards to the number of bubbles in a bottle of champagne, she explains all, writing clearly in a very tight, organized format. You'll also find fun wine facts from the book becoming part of your conversation. It was a great Christmas present years ago, and almost surprisingly, remains timely today.
