The art of wine tasting invites you to get to know a supreme pleasure of the world of the senses and the realm of the spirit. It's partly about value--identifying the quality of a wine so you never overpay at a restaurant or in stocking your own cellar. But, wine tasting is also about learning the difference between a good wine and a great one. Most important is the pleasure of taking a sip and knowing the story of where a wine came from, how its grapes were grown, the techniques used to make it, and how it can promise to provide an unforgettable evening. The quick course comes with instructions and exercises that train you in what to look for. Vocabulary tips are accompanied by "Tasting Briefs"--practical advice on everything from choosing wines with food to using all your senses of smell, taste, touch, sight, and even hearing.
