Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Rather than overload budding oenophiles with a comprehensive survey of winemaking, grape varietals, regions and producers (which Gaiter and Brecher nicely did in The Wall Street Journal Guide to Wine), the authors of the WSJ's "Tastings" column structure this book around holidays, events and common challenges such as traveling, negotiating wine lists and shopping confidently. It's an accessible, pleasurable read, showcasing the couple's unpretentious love of wine, from the jug to the rare vintage. Some chapters are stronger than others—the quiz on movie and TV "wine scenes" falls short of more informative sections on kosher wine, wines for summer, what to serve with Thanksgiving fare, wines for weddings and wine tastings. And readers may tire of the cheery letters from fans and find themselves thirsting for more Gaiter and Brecher. But this is really a testament to the couple's appeal as the ultimate anti-snob experts—their spirit comes so alive on the page, you'd love to find them sitting in your living room, opening one of their favorite California Cabs or white Bordeaux.

Gaiter and Brecher’s matter-of-fact writing style will not intimidate the novice or offend the veteran wine enthusiast. (Library Journal)

By Beverly J. Settle on December 2, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is the third book (plus one revised) on wine authored by Dottie & John, two very talented writers for the Wall Street Journal. If you enjoyed their first two books, you will love this one. As you probably already know, their books are not intended to be atlases of viticulture, but are "how to books" on the enjoyment of wine and how wine impacts our day to day life. How wine makes daily events more meaningful and helps to rekindle memories of remote events. The book should be read as a novel -- cover to cover -- as there are pearls of information in every chapter, including hints on how to tour domestic and foreign wine regions, on shopping for wine, gift suggestions, wine websites, and of course multiple suggestions for wines for any occasion. Most importantly, this book describes how hundreds of others across the world and you the reader can integrate the love of wine into your daily life.

It is a very unpretentious book that helps people choose and enjoy wine. I tremendously enjoyed the writing style of the two authors, as it was down to earth and very personal. A great book!

This book is full of columns describing how to enjoy wine at a host of holidays, from Thanksgiving at home to a special vacation. My recommended chapter is the one on Restaurants. I heartily agree with the authors' `ten easy steps' for ordering wine at a restaurant.
