Being that summer is finally here, it is time to put away our gloves, hats and long underwear and embrace the sun shining on our faces! And what better way to spend a lazy summer day than by touring your local winery or vineyard? Many people assume that if you want to visit a winery you have to travel far distances to the larger vineyards of the Napa Valley, the Loire or the Hunter Valley. Truth is, you don’t have to travel very far at all to experience the wonder that is the winery, all the while at the same time supporting and giving back to your local community!
If you haven’t noticed yet from the rest of this blog/site, the creator (me, lol) has just released a new book called “Any Glass With Wine In It, Is a Wine Glass! A Real People’s Guide to Wine”.
I’ve never written a book before, but the book has earned wonderful reviews (click on “reviews” above) and has quickly become an Amazon Best Seller!
Would somebody pinch me?
As I wrote, I put thoughts and stories that pertained to wine into the book, many about people I know and love… and of course, after spending close to 10 years in the wine business can easily consider myself an expert at knowing what the average person “doesn’t know” about wine.
The book targets the average wine drinker. The person who does NOT subscribe to wine magazines, read the wine forums and websites, or have a 12,000 bottle collection is who will enjoy and benefit from this book the most. I explain in simple terms how to shop for, order, buy and drink wine, as well as tips on storage, reading wine labels and more. The book is meant to be FUN!
I can assure you that you’ll laugh and learn as you read… and when you put the book down you’ll feel more confident in your wine knowledge, and might even proclaim the “I’ll order the wine” the next time you and your friends are at your favorite restaurant!
Please use this site to learn about wine and to chat with other wine lovers… and of course buy the book… you’ll love it!
Cheers… no wine snobs allowed,
