Oeno-What? Don't worry, Courtney Cochran makes wine easy. She incorporates simple tips that give you that "A-Ha!" moment, over and over again. Cochran is the consummate hip sommelier, and HIP TASTES, the perfect companion. She's not afraid to go outside of the traditional, often safe, varietals and suggest delicious wines a little off the beaten path. Her tips aren't just tips, they are rules to live buy if you're serious - or not - about a good Aglianico. HIP TASTES is the pocket guide to wine success!

- Danny DiVella, Manager & Sommelier - Michael's NY

Very happy with this book. It was fun and good for the novice, but enough info for the experienced connoisseur :) I think it's a must for anyone beginning to explore the wine world.

Last holiday season I gave this gift to my whole "list" -- ranging from close friends, to office folks, to my grandparents! Everyone gave me GREAT reviews on the book. Since then, I notice the gift recipients have this book prominently placed on their coffee tables or book shelves when I visit their homes. Apparently, it makes them feel hip too! I will definitely be giving this gift again in 2008 to anyone I may have forgotten in 2007.
