What inspired you to write your book?
My wife actually came up with idea for me. She knew nothing about wine when we first met and has become quite knowledgeable with wine over the last few years. The idea came to her that there needs to be a guide when it comes to buying wine at a local store. There are countless selections to choose from and at various price ranges. For a novice wine drinker, all you may is the basic grapes like chardonnay or pinot noir and you may feel that a wine for $20 and up must be better than a wine $10 or lower. Often many just buy wine based on the pretty label they see. With this book, it was the idea of how to find not only affordable wines that are good but perhaps even amazing wines that are at bargain prices. That idea was my inspiration to write a simple reader friendly guide to buying amazing wine at affordable prices.
About your Book:
Table Wine is a reader friendly guide to learning about wine or expanding on that knowledge. It throws out any idea that wine must be expensive and from a highly famed wine region in order for it to be good. From the first to last page the concept of this book is to guide the reader to finding great wine at affordable prices.
For beginning wine drinkers this book serves well to teach you everything from how to properly taste wine, the classic grapes for red and white, and regions of wine that are generally looked over despite the production of great wines. It then extends that basic information further by helping the reader to be able to explore unique and lesser known grape varietals and regions.
For experienced wine drinkers, this book can be a useful tool to expand on your knowledge and perhaps find something new. Many find themselves stuck on classic grapes like Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Merlot. Yet they may find themselves completely unaware of the unique and wonderful flavors of Albarino, Nebbiolo, and Tempranillo. Provided here is an opportunity to explore different grape varietals and regions you may never had before.
For all reading the book, it was written so you can not only find and learn about different grapes and regions but so you can feel confident about your purchasing choices and not be fearful about finding a dud.
