Wine Miscellany: A Jaunt Through the Whimsical World of Wine

$16.95
More Info
Whether seeking a Chateau Petrus, a Chateau d'Yquem, or just a decent bottle of the local vin de pays, anyone intrigued or enchanted by wine and its varied delights will find A Wine Miscellany the perfect accompaniment. Refreshingly light on the palate, it's neither pompous nor patronizing but something else altogether-a fascinating and joyful jaunt through the world of vineyards, vinification, and glorious vintages.
Arranged and compiled as a true miscellany should be, with a deft sprinkling of facts and comments, observations and insights, A Wine Miscellany is that rarest of books-a perfect gift for the wine connoisseur and, for the newcomer to wine, an entertaining and informative introduction to the charm and marvel of all things vino.
Almost every aspect of the history, culture, business, and lore of wine makes a showing within these pages, as do some great stories never before encountered in the usual wine books. So, whether your passion is Claret, Burgundy, or Champagne, Old World or New, and whether you're intrigued by the famous Mouton-Rothschild labels designed by leading artists or curious about the wines favored by (among others) Lord Byron, Shakespeare's Falstaff, or the influential wine writer Robert Parker, A Wine Miscellany is this season's finest vintage, and a pleasure to be savored for years to come.

In real life, and over half a century ago, Jewish-Czech writer and gourmet Joseph Wechsberg visits the medieval Château d'Yquem to sample different years of the "roi des vins" alongside a French connoisseur who had his first taste of wine at age four.

From the world-renowned sommelier Aldo Sohm, a dynamic, essential wine guide for a new generation

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY FOOD52

Aldo Sohm is one of the most respected and widely lauded sommeliers in the world. He's worked with celebrated chef Eric Ripert as wine director of three-Michelin-starred Le Bernardin for over a decade, yet his philosophy and approach to wine is much more casual. Aldo's debut book, Wine Simple, is full of confidence-building infographics and illustrations, an unbeatable depth of knowledge, effusive encouragement, and, most important, strong opinions on wine so you can learn to form your own. Imbued with Aldo's insatiable passion and eagerness to teach others, Wine Simple is accessible, deeply educational, and lively and fun, both in voice and visuals.

This essential guide begins with the fundamentals of wine in easy-to-absorb hits of information and pragmatic, everyday tips--key varietals and winemaking regions, how to taste, when to save and when to splurge, and how to set up a wine tasting at home. Aldo then teaches you how to take your wine knowledge to the next level and evolve your palate, including techniques on building a "flavor library, " a cheat sheet to good (and great) vintages (and why you shouldn't put everything on the line for them), tips on troubleshooting tricky wines (corked? mousy?), and, for the daring, even how to saber a bottle of champagne. This visual, user-friendly approach will inspire readers to have the confidence, curiosity, and enthusiasm to taste smarter, drink boldly, and dive headfirst fearlessly into the exciting world of wine.

Wine Snob's Dictionary: Essential Lexicon of Oenological Knowledge

Wine Snob's Dictionary: Essential Lexicon of Oenological Knowledge

$12.95
More Info
A nicely structured, lightly acidic addition to the handy Snob's Dictionary series, decoding the baffling world of winespeak from A to Z.

Wine Snob. The very phrase seems redundant, doesn't it? When faced with this snobbiest of snobberies, the civilian wine enthusiast needs the help of savvy translators like David Kamp and David Lynch. Their Wine Snob's Dictionary delivers witty explication of both old-school oeno-obsessions (What's claret? Who's Michael Broadbent?) and such new-wave terms as malolactic fermentation and fruit bomb. Among the other things Kamp and Lynch demystify:

Finish: the Snob code-term for aftertaste. (Robert Parker includes the stopwatch-measured length of a wine's finish in his ratings.)

Meritage: an American wine classification that rhymes with heritage, and should NEVER be pronounced meri-TAHJ.

Terroir: that elusive quality of vineyard soil that has sommeliers talking of gunflint, leather, and candied fruits

Featuring ripe, luscious, full-bodied illustrations by Snob's Dictionary stalwart Ross MacDonald, The Wine Snob's Dictionary is as heady and sparkling as a vintage Taittinger, only much less expensive... and much more giggle-inducing. Cheers!

This book combines a love of food and wine with history, culture, and plenty of personal touch.

We all dream of tasting our way through Burgundy, walking through vineyards in Champagne with a winemaker, or dining late into the night on a winery balcony in Chianti. Who better to guide you than someone whose passion and years in the food and wine industry have led to travels and friendship with winemakers all over the world? Vickie Reh takes us right into the kitchen with winemakers--what do they eat during harvest? What do they drink to celebrate the holidays? Which foods pair best with their wines, and why? How does this vary from region to region?

The Wine Table will discuss basics and essentials in food and wine including meeting your local farmer, stocking your pantry, and how to buy and store wine.

We will then travel with the author through various regions of France and Italy, visiting winemakers in their homes to share their stories, cook with them, and enjoy their recipes. Specialties include:
