Praise for The Wine Lover’s Apprentice
“I started reading this book and couldn’t put it down. Kathleen is witty, entertaining, and fascinating.” —Brice Cutrer Jones, president of Emeritus Vineyards
“Straightforward and no-nonsense approach lighting the way to your personal, passionate vino journey.” —Andrew F. Bell, president of Wine Symphony, Inc. and co-founder of the American Sommelier Association
The definitive book for any wine novice
Should I decant? How many types of glassware should I buy? What’s the best corkscrew to use? Sommelier Kathleen Bershad has the answers. In The Wine Lover's Apprentice, Bershad acknowledges the importance of tossing out the rules about wine and taking a relaxed approach to storing and serving everyday bottles.
Readers will learn tricks of the trade and strategies for navigating the shelves of a retail store or ordering wine at a restaurant. The Wine Lover's Apprentice delves into the nitty-gritty details of winemaking and takes a look at the world’s major wine regions. Written in short bites, readers will easily gain a quick understanding of an area’s major grapes, the style or styles of wine, and the appellations that offer the best quality wine (or the best value).
What You’re Tasting When You Taste Wine
Conquering the Restaurant Wine List
Navigating the Wine Shop
Serving, Sipping, and Storing
The Wine Lover's Apprentice unravels the terms you see when reading a wine review, looking at a bottle, or listening to a wine geek talk vino. By the end of this helpful guide, readers will become empowered to know what’s in a bottle, be able to make an educated guess about its flavors, and help change the culture to make drinking wine what it should be—relaxing and fun.
