A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This book is about drinking wine, enjoying wine, laughing about wine, and treating wine in the same way as every other pleasurable part of your life. Sniff Swirl & Slurp provides no nonsense advice on how to get maximum enjoyment from drinking wine. Straight talking wine writer Max Allen explores in detail how countries, regions, grapes and winemaking in all corners of the world affect the taste of wine. This equips you to easily understand why wines from different areas taste the way they do. The first part of the book introduces the basics of wine drinking, such as the best accessories to have to hand, the rituals of sniffing and slurping, and getting the most out of your wine budget. Then, at the heart of the book are fifteen fun and easy introductions to every type of wine style, what it tastes like, and why it tastes the way it does - from posh wines to party wines, from okay wines to sparklers.
