A wine appreciation text for anyone who wants to know more about wine and how culture, geography, and wine making intersect.  Divided into ten chapters, the book introduces readers to wine regions today, and speculates about how wine will evolve.  It also includes practical information for setting up wine tastings, storing wine, and pairing wine with food.  This book makes a good companion on the journey to discover the world of wine.

Editorial Reviews


"It's an excellent book for beginning wine drinkers but also has plenty to offer for the more advanced."

From the Author

Wine Lessons represents a departure for me, although I've been teaching a wine course since 2002.  My other publications include literary analyses, teaching methods, and a historical novel, Terra Firma.  Wine Lessons is a labor of love on a topic about which I've become passionate: enjoying wine as a way to enjoy life.  While many wine books are large format and concentrate on one area of the world or one topic (wine and food), I decided to write a book that was compact so you could take it with you when you travel or commute. I wanted this book to be a sort of conversation between me and the reader, almost like sharing a nice glass of wine with each of you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read April 2, 2012
By Jordan
The author has such a great ability to bring the topic to life. If you are a wine novice or an experienced oenophile this book is highly enjoyable. I had the pleasure of speaking wine with the author and she is a wealth of knowledge with a tremendous passion for wine. I especially enjoyed the stores of her travels and the chapter on terroir. There are many books written on the subject of wine, this is one of the more enjoyable. Happy readings.
