Additionally a terrific gift for any wine lover whether a new wine lover or older one like me . Cheers gents!
For Christmas, I purchased two books as gifts. When they arrived, I had the chance to read through it and immediately had to order one more for myself. I enjoy having family and friends over for dinner and this book will be my guide for purchasing a perfect bottle of wine. To enhance the enjoyment of the wine, I plan to ask one of my guests to read to us during dinner about the wine served.This book is written in everyday language and therefore making it easy to gain a deeper appreciation of the region and the grape. I especially like the section entitled YOU SHOULD KNOW." It's like the Cliff Notes that particular wine. I love this book!
