I would recommend this as a starting point for anyone who wants to learnabout wine I think I learned a lot although I imagine I ll be referring back to it regularly and maybe sometimes keeping it in my bag it s size comes in handy there Short and to the point, if this undaunting guide is not enough to whet your appetite then it ll at least provide enough interesting facts to serve as a conversation starter at dinner parties. If you are holding a glass of wine and thinking that you wish you knew a little bitabout this fascinating liquid, for your own sake or for keeping up the basic conversations this is a good place to start Oh, and Robinson is called The Most Respected in wine biz, so you know, you are forgiven for buying something as shallow as expert in 24 hrs. Makes for a very interesting first read through, and an ideal one to keep and use as a reference book when needed especially when it has such a beautiful front cover. The best thing about this book is that it s short. Wonderfully unpretentious and informative An excellent and relatively unpretentious primer on the basics of wine Also read it in a couple of hours so she is fully correct with the title.
