Editorial Reviews



"This high-class guide is an adventure into the world of wine."

Vanity Fair's "Books You Should Read Now"

"A guide to wine and Champagne to find the most delicious bottles for the best price."


"Advice on drinking wine with confidence and covers topics such as undiscovered wine regions and surprising wine and food combinations." 

The New York Times

"The ultimate guide to drinking like a billionaire on a normal budget."


"The best wine book of the year, giving people the tools to disarm the pretention of wine. Mark Oldman is the best in the business and the rare expert that can move between billionaires and casual drinkers, and take us all along for the ride."

Dane Neal, WGN Radio

"Mark Oldman’s How to Drink Like a Billionaire brilliantly demystifies wine like no book has before, teaching us all to drink passionately, drink smart, and drink with utter confidence. With his usual ease and wit, he has written a guide to wine (and life) for our generation. And we will all drink better for it!"

Gail Simmons, food critic, TV host and author of Talking With My Mouth Full

"Oldman brings a congenial spirit and wry humor to this guide to selecting, drinking, and appreciating wine . . . a useful reference and an enjoyable lark."

Stanford Magazine

"The cheekiest, most fact-packed cheat sheet in all of winedom . . . From Champagne to chardonnay, Mark Oldman helps professionalize your taste in wine."

Jesse Kornbluth, The Good Man Project

"This unpretentious tome teaches readers how to imbibe like the 1 percent—for a fraction of the cost."

Star Magazine

About the Author

Mark Oldman is one the country’s leading wine personalities. Bon Appètit described his style as “winespeak without the geek.” Twice the winner of the Georges Duboeuf Best Wine Book of the Year Award, his books—Oldman’s Guide to Outsmarting Wine (Penguin) and Oldman’s Brave New World of Wine (Norton)—have been called the “perfect book” by the Wall Street Journal and the “perfect primer” by The New Yorker. Oldman’s sold-out appearances at the country’s top gastronomic festivals are considered must-see events in the world of food and wine. He has been the wine expert for Pottery Barn, lead judge in the PBS television series “The Winemakers,” and the wine correspondent for the Food Network. Keenly interested in innovating in the areas of education and consumer advocacy, Oldman also founded and ran the career portal Vault.com for a decade until its successful sale to a private equity firm. A licensed attorney and three-time Stanford graduate, he serves or has served on five major boards of the university.
