Description

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.

A useful chart that ties bouquets to wines is tucked inside." Florence Fabricant for "The New York Times""Fiendishly clever." "Food & Wine""
