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!

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.

I picked up this book and also gave it to guests at a wine tasting party I just had for my husband - hosted by the author Courtney Cochran - and everyone has given me rave reviews.

the book is very well written and easily read - lots of good ideas and information about wine tasting. I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering to buy it.

I always wanted a crash course on wine that didn't require endless hours of
studying while leaving me with an empty bank account. Courtney's book is
beautifully written, easy to read, memorable, and most importantly
informative. If it worked for me, it can work for anyone!
