    A very clear and concise book; a very, very quick read. The details were easy to grasp and to the point which made it easy to read this book in one sitting (under an hour.) It is very informative and I now know more about wine than I ever thought I would! A must read for everyone who loves consuming wine and wants to learn the whole fancy jargon related to it.

    RATING: 4 STARS 2018; Wellfleet Press/Quarto Publishing Group (Review Not on Blog) If you are like me, and just like drinking wine but don't know anything about it (and do actually want to know stuff) this is the book for you!

    As always with this series of books (Know It All) the balance between writing and pictures is perfect; the explanations are short and clear, and the illustrations are a variety of drawings and photographs. It contains an introduction explaining the goal of the book and a very short overview of the subject of wine. The book is divided into seven topics: The Vineyard, The Winery, Classic Grapes & Wines, History, Iconic Regions, The Business of Wine, and Enjoyment of Wine.

The book is divided into seven topics: The Vineyard, The Winery, Classic Grapes & Wines, History, Iconic Regions, The Business of Wine, and Enjoyment of Wine. Each topic includes a glossary that will help the reader understand better what is being discussed in that section. Additionally, each subtopic offers links to related subjects which readers can used to expand their knowledge of wine. Lastly, the book also has short summaries and timelines of some important characters within the history of wine. This book can be a thoughtful present for a friend or something to add to one’s own personal library. I received a free copy via NetGalley.

    Excellent For Beginners As a "wanna-be" oenologist, I love reading books about wine. This one is a treat! Short, concise, easily readable, and in bite-size "sips", it would be of great benefit for anyone wanting a brief introduction into wine. The book is divided into sections, then further broken down into 50 very short articles covering a wide range of topics.

The sections are the vineyard, the winery, classic grapes and wines, history, iconic regions, the business of wine, and the enjoyment of wine. This would be a wonderful book to learn the basics. You can find out the difference between different types of wines and the grapes used to make them. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, they are all covered and explained. Learn about the different regions wine comes from....Bordeaux, Tuscany, Napa Valley. Learn how to taste wine. Have you ever been at a party where one of your wine "snob" friends are going on and on about a wine? By reading this book, you can offer one of these tidbits to show them that you, too, are conversant on the subject. That alone is worth the price!

    If you are not a wine drinker, you are about to learn far more than you expected (speaking as that person). Each section is split into short, enticing pieces to read on some aspect of wine. For those who drink wine, you'll still likely learn something new and have a whole new perspective of wine. For those who have slight interest, you realize how very much goes into wine. All that said, I do think I'd have appreciated it more were my original interest greater due to the surprising depth of this If you are not a wine drinker, you are about to learn far more than you expected (speaking as that person).

All that said, I do think I'd have appreciated it more were my original interest greater due to the surprising depth of this book and topics that, for me, weren't to my interest. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Incluir tópicos de la comercialización de los vinos me parece fantástico, se nota el perfil de un Sommelier que comprende la dificultad de vender los vinos con honestidad. Es bastante fluida su lectura, por cada sorbo de información derrama el ansia por seguir buscando

    I would like to thank Quarto Publishing Group and Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to review this very interesting, straight forward book. This can come under the heading of "Everything You Need to Know About Wine etc.,!" There is not a lot of jargon, just basic information about wine, taste, appearance etc., this tells you all you want to know about that bottle of wine you are enjoying. Highly recommended.

    I enjoyed the concept of the book. 50 concepts, each explained in a concise manner. The breadth of coverage is surprisingly wide, and I’ve learned enough to understand the jargon of wine appreciation. The illustrations and pictures leave much to be desired though!
