As a novice, I began my research with a goal of broadening my basic knowledge of wine. The title caught my attention. The book is divided into two parts. The first part the author set out to educate the reader on the complexity and origins, along with the different choices of wine. The second part, which to me was the most interesting and useful of the two parts, was the guidance offered, as a benefit for using on a social level. Mr. Kreider offers, " A simple French lesson " in his Introduction, which could be beneficial to many. I awarded Uncorked a three star rating for the reason that I feel the first part of the book could have been condensed. I feel that the knowledge I acquired was not as much as I expected for the price of this book. Much of what I read, I already had knowledge, even with considering myself to be on a novice level.
