Prime yourself on Wine
I’ve been in the business for decades, but I get surprised now and then with a new fact about wine. How can newcomers get a download of information, to prime themselves for learning about the noble grape? One way is Exploring Wine, a comprehensive and gorgeous book from Steven Kolpan, Brian H. Smith, and Michael A. Weiss, the third edition of which was just released from Wiley publishers, available now for $65. A hefty book, there is no detail the authors failed to disclose in this Herculean attempt to teach readers all there is to know about wne. It is completely revised, and features vastly improved chapters on Italy, California, Greece, and the Eastern Mediterranean wine-producing regions. Exploring Wine is a must buy. It will make a great gift for your favorite oenophile.
