Reviews - What do customers think about A Guide to Wine?
A jolly good introduction to the world of wine Nov 12, 2007
This is an entertaining, informative overview of basic wine knowledge. It is an excellent beginning point for a budding oenophile or anybody who just wants to learn about wines. Lively music evokes imagery of each country whose wines are featured. Additionally, there is a helpful booklet with maps of the most important and newly-emerging wine regions. Accept Julian Curry's accent and manner of speaking and you will be well enriched and ready to confidently walk into any wine shop or order from any wine list by the end of the fourth CD.
Content filled CD Feb 22, 2006
I bought this to learn more about wines while in the car. It is good, but not overwhelming. Some sections are overflowing with content that is hard to absorb while driving and some sections are slow. Since it is the only CD I could find, I rate it as much better than nothing. I know more now than when I started.
