If it's time to expand your horizons, impress some clients, or introduce your better half to that new wine bar down the street, here's the ideal wine guide. More Oz Clarke road trip than Jancis Robinson compendium, A Beer Drinker's Guide to Knowing and Enjoying Fine Wine is a friendly, arm-around-the-shoulder wine primer that educates and enlightens from a beer drinker's point of view. No arcane disquisition or convoluted wine writing, just a witty, easy-going explanation of wine styles and varietals, tasting and scoring techniques, the major international wine regions and inside tips for buying or selecting the perfect wine for any occasion, all in clear, concise language, infused with nuggets of beer lore, the keys to understanding winespeak, and much more. All in all, a fun, enjoyable and surprisingly informative take on the wonderful world of wine.
