When you buy a bottle of wine to enjoy at home, wouldn't you like to know when it's going to be at its best?
Based on Maria Thun's biodynamic calendar, this handy little pocket guide tells you which days are optimum wine-drinking days, and which days to avoid if you want to get the most out of your glass. At least two supermarket chains only do their wine tastings on the best days as indicated by this calendar!
Includes a bonus month, December 2013, to cover the Christmas season.

Review quote

'A number of heavy weights in the wine industry agree with her - supermarkets Tesco and Marks & Spencer only hold tastings on the days which her calendar says are favourable.'
-- Jamie Irving, Greatgrapes Blogspot
'Anyone saving those extra-special bottles for christmas and the New Year might want to consult a new biodynamic tasting calendar -- and hold off on the corkscrew.'
-- Richard Woodward, Decanter.com
'Whatever you think about biodynamic viticulture, it might be a fun experiment.'
-- Julia Harding, Jancisrobinson.com
'David Motion, owner of The Winery in London's Maida Vale is now a convert and stocks a range of biodynamic vintages. "A root day wont make a good wine taste bad, but on a fruit day the wine is amost leaping out the bottle and singing ta-dah!'
-- Jessica Fellows, Telegraph.co.uk
'Any critics reading this (I'm sure there are one or two!) might like to know that according to the Thuns, and leading organic/biodynamic writer Hilary Wright, it has been shown that using biodynamic techniques can have a significant effect on the quality of produce.'
-- Costa News
'This pocket-sized guide to the best days for drinking wine will be of great interest to those who enjoy the subtleties of a glass of wine...
'No avid wine drinker would want to be without this guide and with Christmas not so far away, and at such a modest price, When Wine Tastes Best would make an excellent 'stocking filler' for any friends and relatives who you know enjoy a glass of wine.'
-- Rosemary Usselman, New View
