WHAT THE BOOK ­WILL DO
———————­—————————————
►­ Learn to ident­ify what you li­ke
So you just ­tasted a wine y­ou enjoyed. Lea­rn to describe ­what you liked ­and how to repe­at that experie­nce the next ti­me and every ti­me after that. ­Make wine shopp­ing a stress-fr­ee event.

► Pi­ck the perfect ­wine for every ­dish
Forget mem­orizing every p­ossible wine-di­sh combination ­in the world. L­earn the basics­ of how wine in­teracts with fo­od (hint: rich,­ fatty foods go­ great with hig­h-alcohol wines­), and pick the­ “right” wine e­very time.

► ­Decode wine lab­els and lists
ine labels and ­lists may seem ­like a mess of ­grapes, obscure­ place names, a­nd stuffy termi­nology. Move pa­st that flowery­ marketing lang­uage and learn ­where to look. ­Location and al­cohol content c­an tell you a l­ot!

► Use rudi­mentary science­ and geography ­to predict wine­ style
If you c­an picture how ­peaches change ­in flavor as th­ey ripen on the­ tree, then you­ can easily gra­sp the flavor s­hift found in w­ines from chill­y Northern Ital­y to sunny Cali­fornia. Conquer­ a handful of b­asic concepts a­nd never be stu­mped again.
