This book is so much fun! Typically, I would shy away for a wine book because they feel too snooty.... Not this one! The author speaks in such a fun, approachable, down-to-earth way. I learned so much from this book. This would make a great hostess, shower, Christmas, or birthday gift paired with a bottle of wine. Cheers!!!!

I was stressing about an upcoming holiday dinner party that I'm hosting but after reading 'Hello Wine', I now have a menu and my wine decided and I'm feeling very confidant! I plan on giving one of Melanie's books to each of my guests as a Christmas gift. Thank you for your guidance, Melanie!

This is just the kind of book I've been waiting for!! A perfect introduction to all of the "how-to's" of wine. I love the menus for different flights I can taste-test with friends in order to better understand how to articulate flavors and nuances of my favorite wines. This book is a perfect mix of both learning the fundamentals and introducing me to new varietals and ways to expand my comfort zones. Well done!

From the moment I opened this book, Melanie's personality was bubbling out from each page! What an amazing guide this is! Her descriptive wine terms create a visual picture for you and I bet you will remember the information you were looking for. For example , The "Acid Queen" aka Sauvignon Blanc from the chapter Grapes to Know p. 94 is one term I have remembered and utilized all of these years. Once you read this chapter, you will understand the differences between grape varietals for your own knowledge and appropriate wine selections for your taste.Hello, Wine is an ongoing source for your wine IQ.
The book is a very useful guide for those new-comers to wine or for those who just want to know more about what they are drinking. It lists all the facts in very colorful and easy to understand information about how to properly order or chose wines, the differences in wines, as well as general guidelines ( p. 143) of wine and food pairings with specific pairings such as cheeses, chocolates and hard-to-pair foods.What I like most about Hello, Wine is the information in the book is from the extensive knowledge that Melanie has gained over the years of disciplined studies and used this information to express her own opinion that she has formed through years of experiences of her love and passion for wine!

After spending just 10 minutes with this book, I already feel more confident while shopping for wine. The book is comprehensive, easy to read and fun. I keep a stack of these books and give one with a bottle of wine as host gifts, and to friends, family or co-workers.

This is a great, easy to understand guide for anyone looking to learn more about wine in a fun, unpretentious format. Wagner does an outstanding job of making you feel welcome and educates in a way that makes you want to learn more, try new wines, and enjoy with friends. Along with a bottle of wine, this will be my go-to holiday gift for friends and co-workers this year.
