Wine book that's not stuffy,
This review is from: The Wine Club: A Month-by-Month Guide to Learning About Wine with Friends (Paperback)
With the glut of "how-to" wine books written by stuffy wine experts, Petrosky's book is a breath of fresh air. She's able to couch solid wine information in a fun, non-threatening package. She takes you through a year's worth of wine club gatherings with numerous hints, insights and facts not just about wine, but about how one might improve their life through friendships and camaraderie. She shows readers how much fun wine can be and that no one ought to be threatened by it. Oh and there are a ton of great recipes accompanied by solid techniques and serving suggestions that speaks to her experience as a chef and expertise on hospitality for contemporary lifestyles. This book opens the door to a world of wine enjoyment for anyone who's drinking the same-old, same-old Pinot Grigio or Chardonnay and is just slightly curious about the greater world of wine.
