Through entertaining anecdotes, novices are put to ease while connoisseurs are delighted with Jennifer Rosen's adventurous and sophisticated palate. From choosing a bottle of wine to bring to a dinner party to ordering from a restaurant wine list, many Americans are intimidated by the unpronounceable names and highbrow image of wine. Jennifer Rosen arms readers with the knowledge necessary to approach wine with confidence rather than fear. Through entertaining anecdotes, readers learn how to order with ease; what terms like "oak" and "earth"? mean; what to expect from a sommelier; how to tame the red wine headache; how to cook with wine; storage and glassware tips; making wine at home; and much more. Witty and irreverent, Rosen sets novices at ease while delighting connoisseurs with her adventures and sophisticated palate.
