Making Sense of Wine Paperback - 2004

by Matt Kramer


From the publisher

The paperback edition of this highly praised wine classic includes a new preface and an all-new chapter that covers changes and advances in winemaking since the book's initial publication in 1989. Kramer explores connoisseurship through the practical devices of "thinking wine" and "drinking wine," making for an engrossing journey through one of life's great pleasures. Wine's complexities are often glossed over in favor of sound bites tailored to the novice. Kramer embraces and celebrates these complexities. The superbly written text covers the basics, from food and wine pairings to setting up a wine cellar.

First line

Connoisseurship is a matter of attitude and approach.
