Must-Have Wine Guide, April 13, 2010

Just tell me what''s good! For those who have a taste for accessible, affordable wines and a distaste for comparative shopping
Ever go to buy a bottle or two of wine and can't decipher what to buy from all the choices on the shelves? Well, takes the guesswork out of making that decision. It is a great wine guide for both the novice and the connoisseur of wine. Carolyn Evans-Hammond has made it easy to choose a great wine for every day or a special occasion by recommending the "good, better and best wines" from the most popular wine varietals. Each category comes with tasting notes, a photo of the bottle/label and other interesting tidbits about food pairing, wine storage, etc... I thoroughly enjoyed reading this cleverly written and informative book from start to finish. It is a handy guide to take along on that shopping trip to the wine store or your local grocery store when shopping for wines...

I saw this book recommended by Amazon as a result of a purchase of "Wine For Dummies" a long, long time ago. I'm quick with the delete button, but was intrigued and decided to take a look. My wife and I enjoy wine and have found we are enjoying a glass more often during the week and not just for dinner out or special events. I like the promise of a book that rates affordable and findable wines under $15. Alas, I live in a small town in Iowa, how many wines in the grocery store are going to be in the book. I can say I was stunned to see many old friends and many I can't wait to meet on the pages of Carolyn's book.

This is the book that I have been looking for! I am a wine lover but due to my lack of knowledge I have often found myself in aisles picking out which bottle of wine has the prettiest or most interesting labels; talk about judging a book by its cover.. This book hits every note. 250 bottles reviewed and the book is small enough to tote in your bag or leave in your glove box. I LOVE the that the author put pics of labels next to every review to help you pic the bottle out easier. This book has made wine drinking more fun for me as it gave me the confidence to host a wine tasting as all of the descriptions of the wines are listed as well. This book teaches you the history of the type of wine and also etiquette and pairing ideas. There are also wine menu suggestions for parties and even weddings!! I have fallen hard for many of the wines suggested in this book. I am buying it for all of my wine lover friends!! I beg that the author please design her own iphone app to support this...
