About the Author

Grant Reynolds is an award-winning sommelier, included in Forbes's 30 Under 30 in 2017 and named Wine & Spirits' Best New Sommelier in 2013. He is the owner of the wine shop Parcelle and is a partner in the New York City restaurants Charlie Bird, Pasquale Jones, and Legacy Records. Grant has been featured in Bon Appétit, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, and Vogue, and he has written about wine for Vanity Fair.

Chris Stang is the cofounder and CEO of The Infatuation, one of the fastest growing restaurant discovery platforms in the world. He has served as the architect of the brand's editorial voice and creative vision since the company's inception in 2009, developing a dedicated audience of millions who turn to The Infatuation for useful, relatable, and entertaining restaurant recommendations. Chris was nominated in 2015 for a James Beard Award for Humor Writing, and in 2019 the Financial Times called him "arguably the most influential restaurant reviewer in America." His favorite word from that quote is "arguably."

Reviews

"Grant and Chris have guided my way around wine and food for years. Now, with their user-fun and -friendly book, readers will get a basic working knowledge in picking a delicious wine, effortlessly. How to Drink Wine is the perfect gift for anyone who is wine-illiterate, which is almost everyone I know." --Jessica Seinfeld, author of Food Swings

"I tore through the book. It offered very actionable tips."--Bill Bradley, GQ

"Grant and Chris know great wine. They also understand that great wine is about good living; it enrichens friendships, enlivens conversations, and rounds life's rough edges. Do yourself a favor and let them tell you about it." --Dan Keeling, cofounder and editor of Noble Rot

"A great resource for anyone who loves wine. The book reveals many everyday secrets of wine we take for granted. A must-buy!" --Rajat Parr, author of The Sommelier's Atlas of Taste

"How many times have you sat down for dinner with friends after a long day with your mouth watering, waiting to imbibe a glass of wine while they waxed not so eloquently about different wines that you know nothing about? Grant and Chris are like the masterful DJ you hear spinning at a party and make you ask, 'How come when I play records it doesn't sound as good?' But they are not just doing it--they are showing you how, too. How to Drink Wine demystifies this topic, taking out the BS and replacing it with fun." --Mike D, the Beastie Boys

"Oenophiles Grant Reynolds and Chris Stang put highfalutin sommelier-speak into casual terms you'd actually use with friends, so that you can shop like a pro."--Martha Stewart Living
