This book instantly made me smarter about wine. From identifying the range of fruits in the nose to understanding more about how the wood barrels and the dirt affect the scent, I learned so much.
In the back is a fold out map to the understand the smells of the entire wine world. You start in the middle and "sniff" your way out to the edge learning how to identify the types of wine you like most.
I love this book. Keeping it close by as I open more bottles and definitely picking up copies for friends. Highly recommend.
Anyway, this book is bound to be a scream at parties, and our Italian friends won't believe this book exists unless I can show it to them. I have no illusions that it will serve any other purpose other than to entertain my friends. If you really believe this will teach you about wine and make you an "expert", then uh... good luck to you. The drive-thru is about two miles down on the left. : )
All we need now is a scratch and sniff book on sex education . . . oh wait . . . didn't something like that come out in the 70s?
If you know absolutely nothing, I can see this being an okay introduction or cute gift, but the title itself is very misleading.
The scratch and sniff areas smell like children's stickers or markers, and they weren't very vibrant or accurate.
While the info is interesting and useful, in a foundation sense, the education is sparse with capitals "S-P-A-R-S-E". Also, I could not give it five stars for me because It is more clever than useful, for those with some knowledge. However, if that's you, file it under "most fun wine novelty item / book ever".
