Book Description

It’s hard to imagine a world without wine; I mean, what else would we use to help us decipher the meaning of life, cope with dating mishaps, or get through an episode of The Bachelor?

But do you know what makes great wine better than good wine? Or why one Chardonnay can taste totally different from another Chardonnay? How about why restaurants put us through the whole wine-pouring ritual?

Savvy Girl: A Guide to Wine leaves out the boring details and gets straight to what you really want to know about wine: how to taste, talk about, buy, and enjoy it. We know that you don’t need to be an expert on wine, you just want to be savvy.

So get this five-hour read, get savvy, and then get back to your fabulous life.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brittany's book makes wine-geek-speak understandable and fun. Stop being intimated. Read this book, open a bottle of wine, and enjoy. Highly recommended."  --Neil McNally, CWE, Wine Sales and Marketing Professional, Wine Educator

"In the first of what I suspect will be a highly successful series of guide books geared towards the "Savvy Girl," Deal cuts right to the chase with her no-nonsense approach to the world of wine. Accessible and informative--Savvy Girl, A Guide to Wine is the perfect companion for the reader looking to familiarize themselves with the basics of wine. I highly recommend this book to both weekend wine warriors in search of the perfect terroir and budding wine connoisseurs, just beginning their foray into the world of wine."  --Meg Gilbert, Director of Sales at Gilbert Cellars

"Want to learn more about wine? I'd like to introduce you to Savvy Girl, your new BFF. In Brittany Deal's debut guidebook, she explores the basics of wine. It is written in a sassy and conversational tone, as if you're learning the (wine) ropes from your dear friend who has your back. With its contemporary references, it will make you smile, too. This succinct guide is filled with useful tips, quirky comparisons, and 'wino buzzwords.' From tasting wine and describing it to ordering a bottle in a restaurant, Brittany Deal makes learning learning the ABC's of wine approachable and fun." --Cortney Roudebush, Author of "Where I Want to Be: A Wine Country Novel"

About the Author

Brittany Deal is a Los Angeles resident and a Seattle native. When she was eighteen years old, she traded in her North Face fleece and sneakers for miniskirts and stilettos when she headed south to attend the University of Southern California (USC). Four years later Brittany graduated with a degree in business and began working for a bank.

After a couple of years of two-hour LA commutes, Brittany took a leave of absence from her banking job to travel and get perspective. Somewhere in the Bolivian Amazon between reapplying bug spray and reading countless how-to books on her Kindle, Savvy Girl was born.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't feel like a wine idiot anymore! October 16, 2013
By Jamie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I always feel self conscious when I don't know what wine to order at a restaurant or serve when I have a dinner party. This book was really informative but also fun to read. I feel like now I know way more about wine in general, and the book will also be a great resource to have on my book shelf for future questions!

5.0 out of 5 stars Savvy Girl Wine #getsavvy October 16, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book on wines to educate myself before a girls trip to Napa. This book was educational, easy to read and fun! It was the perfect way to effortlessly get the knowledge that I needed to know about wines. The slogan of the book really says it all "So read'em, get savvy, and then get back to your fabulous life." LOVE IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! October 16, 2013
Format:Paperback
I adore wine but when I go out and ask the waiter what Chardonnay or Cab he or she like best- they say "do you like full-bodied?" Or "how do you feel about chocolate undertone?" Etc

I mean, I don't fricken know! Haha I know I love chocolate, but I can tell you I've never tasted it in any wine I've tried- chocolate undertone or not! Haha
I've been wanting to learn more about wine and what all these things mean but always felt so overwhelmed by all the information out there, trying to sift through it.

This book makes it easy. And now I get it, and can sound like I'm wine educated when I'm out.
Really easy, yet intelligent read. Love!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Wine Guide! October 22, 2013
By Jay
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm writing a review because even though I'm a dude, I found this book to be extremely interesting. I purchased this guide as a gift for my friend, but found myself reading it from front to back. Now, I need to decide if you can gift a book with ruffled pages...Anyways, even though it's intended for women, I would highly recommend it to anyone. I started this book as a wine drinker and walked away a wino. Now I can actually talk about wine without sounding like a complete idiot. Although short, this is a fantastic read with all the essentials about wine. It's really one of those books where you lose track of time while reading. I believe it will make a great gift or reference on your next wine tasting trip. Stay savvy my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Savvy Girl to another January 9, 2014
By BRIT
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Reading Savvy Girl, is like having a conversation with your best friend who has something great to teach you. It is written in such an approachable way but is jam-packed with information. Normally when I'm trying to learn a new subject, the information goes in one ear and right out the other, but not with Savvy Girl guides. The author gives you all the info you need and want to know while filtering out all the stuff I would forget about anyways! I can't wait for the next books in the series! I already feel so much more confident buying and ordering wine I know I will like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Savvy Girl: A guide to Winr December 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Easy to follow language which doesn't make the reader feel like a dunce. Good directions for pairings and wine tasting parties. Enjoyed reading it through - it is a reference book to be kept on your shelf so perhaps an indulgence in buying a hard copy might be in order?.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wine smarts that are a fun read! October 19, 2013
By saxon
Format:Paperback
I admittedly knew close to nothing about wine before reading this book - pretty much all I could tell you was which wines still tasted okay at a reasonable enough price. I happened upon this book right after a recent trip to Napa, and WISHED I had found it earlier! It's not only a fun (and quick) read, but it's incredibly informative with really interesting facts that I never knew about the wine industry or the jargon behind it. It's a brief enough overview that you aren't overwhelmed, but includes enough information that you really do feel "savvy." Definitely a must-read if you love wine!!

More About the Author

Brittany Deal is the Founder and CEO of Savvy Girl, a lifestyle brand that publishes short, engaging, and informative how-to books that young women actually want to read. Deal's edgy, smart, "girlfriend-to-girlfriend" titles are jam-packed with useful info and presented in a way that helps women put all of what they're learning to use in their own lives--instantly. You won't find any 5-week diet plans or 300-page boring self-help books here; Savvy Girl is all about cutting to the chase and giving women all the pertinent info they need to be savvy on a range of topics.

Deal's first book, Savvy Girl: A Guide to Wine, was published in October 2013. Deal spent two years researching wine and the wine industry to write the book--a nice change from her previous, six-figure job in banking that she ditched after an epiphany in the Bolivian Amazon. With so much to learn--and far too many uninteresting how-to books lining the self-help aisles of bookstores--Deal decided to launch Savvy Girl. Now, she has several other collaborative books in the works, including titles on healthy eating, etiquette, sex, and more.

Deal graduated Cum Laude from the University of Southern California in 2007, with a B.S. in Business Administration. Born in Seattle, Washington, Deal now lives in Manhattan Beach, California, with her fiancé.
