The most extensive and straightforward of the bar books…

In a restaurant, do you always let somebody else order the wine? When you hear someone say, “Sherry,” do you think, “Who’s she?” Does trying to recall the difference between a Pinot Noir and a Pinot Gris defeat you? Does selecting a wine from a wine shop’s shelves unnerve you? Suffer no more. With Drinkology WINE, James Waller, author of the successful cocktail handbook Drinkology, offers a guide to understanding wine that’s written with you—the novice oenophile—in mind.

Witty and accessible, Drinkology WINE begins with a basic wine vocabulary. To explain how wine is made, Waller then takes you on a visit to a working winery. He demystifies wine tasting, showing you how to do it just like a pro. Chapters on red and white wine grapes and on sparkling wines equip you with fundamental knowledge. And Waller’s tour of the wine world is conducted from your local wine shop: the place you’re most likely to encounter wine in all its breathtaking—sometimes intimidating—variety. Stylish in its presentation yet assuming no prior knowledge of the subject, Drinkology WINE is an invaluable resource for the wine neophyte and an entertaining refresher course for the more experienced oenophile.
