"Though shelves creak under the weight of wine books, here's a welcome addition that's relaxed, inviting and intelligent. A sweet, bright humor pervades the book, as Laughren makes wine tasting sound like fun rather than an opportunity to embarrass yourself. He's like a knowledgeable friend who doesn't wear it on his sleeve. Cheers to this spirited, perceptive guide." --Kirkus, starred review
