Reviews - What do customers think about Good Wine: The New Basics?

A Handsome and Informative How-To for Wine  Sep 7, 2008
Richard Paul Hinkle's good-looking book Good Wine is a valuable resource for anyone wanting to learn the basics of wine appreciation. Useful information on the different varietals (wines from a single grape, like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), the wine regions of the world, food and wine, selecting a wine merchant and proper wine storage are all covered here, illustrated by gorgeous, lush photography. Hinkle's writing is straightforward and easy to digest with none of the wine mumbo-jumbo readers often have to encounter with most typical wine journalism. This book would be a good gift for young people turning 21, for people just dabbling in wine who want to learn more, or for people who have been drinking wine and may be in a rut (drinking only one or two kinds of wine) and desire to understand more.

Great Book on Wine....Easy Read!!  Oct 16, 2005
Just finished this book and was very satisfied with it. It's an easy read with many good points to consider..... Many people won't let anyone tell them what music to like, or art to appreciate, but some how when it comes to wine, they can't trust the same judgment to decide which wine to drink or like. The pictures in the book are Excellllllllent! I may read again sometime later because it made me think about and look at wine just a little differently!
