The world of wine is fascinating and deep yet when we try to learn more it can seem daunting. It should be fun and not complicated or mysterious. This book is written for wine lovers from beginners to professionals. It was created to gently assist the reader through all the stages of enjoying wine. The author answers all the "why" questions about wine. The "wonders" are easily explained by a logical and scientific approach. These explanations and illustrations prepare the way so that the reader can smoothly move on to the next level. • Do we need some special talent for wine tasting? -> No. -> Just lots of wine tasting. • Why does sunshine matter? -> Because it is the most important factor in judging the appearance of wine. - > We have to look at the appearance carefully. • How should we describe the age? -> This book offers many examples and sample expressions. The author takes the reader in hand to naturally learn the basic parts of wine tasting and further, to be able to express the taste in "wine" terms. "Scientific approach" might sound a bit serious but it really is not. It simply means a consistent and methodical approach.We overlay our logical explanation with a sensory understanding about wine. This book was very carefully conceived and designed to assist the reader in understanding ideas and what we "feel"; our senses. By displaying color samples, graphic charts and pictures, the author's way of sensing wine’s characteristics are easily understood. This is a truly unique book both because of its approach and its "sensory" focus on tasting wine. * Images of all the various factors that make up the aroma > from herbs to sandalwood. • Charts and graphics - > Sensory and holistic understanding of wine by pictures, illustrations, charts and graphs. • High definition photographs of various famous wines in the glass as they appear in actual wine tasting. -> Proprietary photographic technique used to express the detailed color differences between wines.

Even the French admit that Jancis Robinson is the "undisputed mistress of the kingdom of wine" (Le Figaro). Internationally renowned for her work in both television and print, she is the editor of the bestselling Oxford Companion to Wine and has won more than two dozen major awards around the world. Tasting Pleasure is her compelling account of a passion that began while studying at Oxford University.Writing with Julia Child's authority, Elizabeth David's intelligence, and M.F.K. Fisher's verve, Robinson takes us on a journey through the world's finest cellars, most beautiful vineyards, and best restaurants. As she explores the universe of the grape--from Bordeaux to Australia and South Africa to California--we meet scores of colorful, wine-loving characters, including Philippe de Rothschild, Julian Barnes, Francis Ford Coppola, and Julio Gallo.There are many books about producing and rating wine; this one is about enjoying it. Witty, revealing, and knowledgeable, in Tasting Pleasure Jancis Robinson has distilled twenty years in the wine world into a hugely entertaining read.

The one 'fact' that everyone knows about Emperor Nero is that he fiddled while Rome burned. But what elements of nature and nuture combined to make this notorious character? An entertaining view is presented by Titus Petronius, Nero's pleasure-loving Advisor on Taste, through whose eyes we see the tumultuous, and ultimately tragic, life of the emperor. But is it a view we can trust? As their relationship develops, Petronius finds to his dismay that his personal sympathies lie more with the mad emperor than with the forces that seek to keep him in check. Caught between his own beliefs and the political realities of his time, he finds himself walking a path which will lead him and others inevitably to disaster.

A touching collection of correspondence from over 50 famous painters, writers, and musicians to their beloved mothers. “You want to know my grades: I have bad new for you,” confesses young Baudelaire writing from boarding school. Long before F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby, he was pressing for more pocket money in a letter from summer camp. And before Gustav Courbet became a master painter, he sold his school uniform and wrote, “If I am to be an exception to every rule in every way, I’m off to pursue my destiny.” My Dear Mother is an irresistible treasury of more than a hundred letters from distinguished sons to their mothers, offering an intimate and unexpected glimpse in to the mind and heart of the artist. Whether it’s to ask for socks or for solace, to sketch scenes of travel, to gossip or conspire, the letters in this collection reveal heated moments of creativity, struggle, and accomplishment alongside the business of everyday life, offering a sometimes comical, often touching portrait of the love between sons and mothers. Featuring letters from Elvis Presley, Ezra Pound, E.B. White, Paul Cezanne, Henry James, Henri de Touluse-Lautrec, Richard Wagner, Victor Hugo, Jean Cocteau, Tennessee Williams, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Au Revoir to All That takes us on an entertaining and intriguing journey into France's identity, directly through the tastebuds... Offering a fresh and entertaining approach to understanding French history, through its food and wine, Steinberger reveals a radically changing France; a country moving through social and political reform, economic crises and, importantly, the loss of their seemingly unbreakable dominance in all things gastronomical. If the state of France's celebrated cuisine is the bellwether for the state of the nation, things are looking bleak. Top chefs are renouncing their Michelin stars and prized farmhouse cheeses are going extinct because there is no one to make them. Bistros, brasseries and cafés fold by the scores and hypermarkets and superstores account for 75% of retail food sales. The famed wine-producing Languedoc is home to the world's first wine-terrorist organization - winemakers resorting to violence to protect their struggling industry. But while there may be better baguettes in Tokyo than in Paris, and Spain has become the darling of the gastronomic world, there are glimpses of hope. There are up-and-coming culinary stars and outdoor food festivals, pockets of exuberance amid the gloom. And, as long as a praline millefeuille can be celebrated, savoured and allowed to assume talismanic qualities at a Right Bank tea salon, all is not lost. Au Revoir to All That is an essential - almost edible - book for lovers of food, France and culinary history.

Every wine has a story. In this collection of elegantly written essays from the past thirty years, updated with a new introduction and endnotes, renowned author Gerald Asher informs wine enthusiasts with insightful, engrossing accounts of wines from Europe and America that offer just as much for those who simply enjoy vivid evocations of people and places. Asher puts wine in its context by taking the reader on a series of discursive journeys that start with the carafe at his elbow. In his introduction, Asher says, "Wine . . . draws on everything and leads everywhere.” Whether the subject is a supposedly simple red wine shared in a Parisian caf� or a Napa Valley Cabernet tasted with its vintner, every essay in A Carafe of Red is as pleasurable as the wines themselves.

A lively and informative guide to a year of wine enjoyment and appreciation from acclaimed wine expert and blogger Tyler Colman, a.k.a. "Dr. Vino." In A Year of Wine, award-winning educator Tyler "Dr. Vino" Colman, whose wine blog was hailed by Food & Wine magazine as "one of the seven best," views winter, spring, summer, and fall through the glass of his favorite impact-resistant stemware, pairing each month with its perfect ports, Pinots, and bubblies -- and offering good value recommendations for them all. Throughout, Colman reminds readers to try to pair their pours with context, which is wildly underrated when it comes to enjoying your favorite bottle. And while people tend naturally to drink lighter, more refreshing wines during the warm months and heavier, more serious wines during the winter months, Colman takes the seasonal approach a step further by offering innovative recommendations and enlightening facts that will allow readers to impress their friends for twelve months straight. Is there a perfect wine to serve with chips and salsa on Super Bowl Sunday? Which bottles will help you drown away your tax- day blues without blowing your new budget? Colman answers these questions and much more as he pairs wines with each season, occasion, and moment. Recommending thoughtful and affordable wines for special celebrations and everyday enjoyment, offering tips on beginning a wine collection or spring cleaning the one you have, exploring how to drink with the smallest possible carbon footprint, and explaining how to maximize your wine experience when you dine out, Colman makes wine easy to understand and, most important, to savor. Colman also shares the secret gems of his favorite wine tourism destinations -- where to find the best wine shops in Paris, which Portuguese vintners still crush grapes with their bare feet, and how you can take a ten-tasting-room tour with one stop in a tiny Oregon town -- and turns to some of the country's top sommeliers for their take on wine appreciation as well. Perfect for both seasoned wine enthusiasts and oenophobes, A Year of Wine is an innovative approach that will encourage readers to drink outside the bottle.
