Richard Betts is one of fewer than two hundred master sommeliers in the world, but he's no wine snob and he hates wine-speak. In the first book of its kind, he helps readers scratch and sniff their way to expertise by introducing the basic components of wine - the fruits, the wood, the earth. Enabling anyone to discover the difference between a Syrah and a Sangiovese and get the glass they love every time. Humorously illustrated, with 16 scents, this irresistible gift puts the fun back in wine fundamentals.

Review quote

"Smart, fun, enlightening, and refreshingly free of snobbery." "Real Simple" "The master sommelier Richard Betts s clever new scratch-and-sniff book is likely to broaden the novice s appreciation of wine, explaining how aromas relate to different varietals.... A useful chart that ties bouquets to wines is tucked inside." Florence Fabricant for "The New York Times" "Fiendishly clever." "Food & Wine""
