    One thought on “The Food Lover's Guide to Wine”

    1. A follow-up to their 2006 reference & pairing guide What to Drink With What You Eat, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg offer this labor of love. It's a sweeping overview of the world of fine wine that approaches wine from many different angles: historical, sensory, aesthetic, practical. True to their mission of desnobbing the art and process of wine appreciation, Page and Dornenburg write in an engaging, accessible style. I appreciate their tackling of the matter of taste and agree that quali [...]

    2. I don't know very much about wine and I mostly bought this because of Josh's recent interest in wines, but it was chock full of information. Everything from a history of wine in the United States, to the best serving temperatures, to what kind of wine you might like if you like this other type of wine. Definitely a great resource for a couple of amateurs.

    3. In the spirit of full disclosure, I won this one through GoodReads. Lots of good info about food and wine here. I haven't yet ready every word of it, but there is much for an amateur wine enthusiast to learn from this book.

    4. Love, love, love this book! So much great information. As a total beginner when it came to wine, this book taught me so much. Almost a year since I first read it and I still refer back to it all the time when picking out wines.

    5. Fantastic way to learn about wine for foodies. There are some great notes in here that will save you tons of studying. Truthfully, if what you really want is to pair wine with food, you want Karen Page's other book, What to Eat With What You Eat.

    6. A really great base for me to begin really learning about wine. The huge list of grapes, regions, etc. was a bit daunting to read through, but it is probably more useful as a reference.
