Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Aiming to provide practical buying guidance on more than 400 of the most popular and available wines on the market, Andrea Immer's Wine Buying Guide for Everyone narrowly misses the mark. Immer, a master sommelier and author of Great Wine Made Simple, devotes the bulk of this buying guide to lists, such as "30 Most Popular Chardonnays," "The Top 50 Wines You're Not Drinking," and "Impress the Date: Hip Wines," and, in a separate section, short written reviews. Unfortunately, the lists, with no more than wine names and value and price ratings, aren't very insightful, nor are the reviews, which often seem to favor style over substance. One wishes Immer perhaps had skipped the lists entirely and made her reviews a little more full-bodied. There are redeeming qualities, however, including the Kitchen Fridge Survivor Grade, which measures how long a wine will keep after it's opened; cuisine lists, which suggest wines to go with Chinese food, pizza, and so forth; and a blank area for notes after each review so readers can track wines they've tried and jot down their impressions. This book, however, as Immer said of one wine, "offers less flavor for the money than its competitors." --Andy Boynton

Being a real Andrea Immer fan (her book is the best to learn about wine) this book makes the perfect companion to take when purchasing or ordering at the restaurant.
Not only are over 400 wines commonly found on wine lists and at retail establishments, but the other helps here on so right on! There is "Best of Lists" "Immer's Top Picks" "The Top 50 Wines You're Not Drinking" "Immersion Course" and "Kitchen Fridge/Countertop Survivor".
She brings the confusing world of wine down to ordinary people level in her book and now in this practical wine tool. What I love the best about this is her suggestions, e.g. "You're Invited--Inimpeachable Bottles to Bring to Dinner" and "What to drink with Mexican Food."

What's good about this book is that a lot of the wines in it are in stores so you can compare the book to what you are about to purchase. It's great that the book is narrowed down to only 400 of the best selling wines in the U.S. I LOVED the categories for best wines for pizza, picnics and other everyday dining experiences. This book is indispensable for anyone who likes to buy good wine for less than fifteen dollars a bottle.

Finally, a book that makes it easy to select wine. All I want is a list of what tastes good for a good price - this book is it.
The wines are ranked by price AND value for the money. I've gotten several selections and they have all been great. Believe it or not, there are wines that go with Mexican and Chinese food. I don't waste money at the wine store any more. Great Job.

Andrea Immer, unlike certain other wine critics, focuses on what you can actually find in stores and what most people can afford to spend on a bottle of wine. For that she should be thanked. She rarely misses the mark with her reviews and all are concise and helpful. You won't find the finest wines in the world from this book but you will find a constant stream of good to very good wines that will fit every party, wine tasting, or any meal you might care to plan. Buy wines from this book and you will not be disappointed. How refreshing to have a non-pretentious American wine critic. Bravo.

For a novice like myself I found this very helpful. The book contains plenty of the wines that you will find in your local grocery store and their wine "rankings". If your more interested in how international wines compare to American wines then you will have to look elsewhere. Some, but not a significant amount of information about matching wine with food. There are plenty of rankings if you like those things, and some good overall information on wine, not just taste. There are some good tips on ordering wine at restaurants(which I think was well done).

I found this book to be informative and user-friendly. The writing is clear and easily accessible to the novice wine buyer, yet it also provides an abundance of information for even the most sophisticated palate. Keep it in the car for all those last minute wine buying sprees!
