    Oh I really liked the voice of the author in Wine for Normal People she neither talks down to you nor expects you to know everything off the bat Sometimes guides can come off as a bit patronizing but I felt she did a great job avoiding that Rather than You didn't already know this? or You may not know wine is made from grapes it felt like a friend trying to meet you where you are and teach you what they know in a kind and fun way Fun as in the occasional subtle sexual innuendo and jokes are mixed inI read Cork Dork last year and I've got to say I kind of wish I had read this book first you know had it been published It's a great primer on all things wine just jam packed full of information It's like an accessible textbook in a lot of ways This is one to keep on your coffee table and flip through every now and then learning different things in short little spurts but maybe not one to try to read every word of in one sittingWould recommend And I haven't listened to the Wine for Normal People podcast but now I want to start

    DNFI'm sorry and this is entirely a me problem I love wine but as it turns out I really don't care much about how wine works And I thought a book like this would be perfect but something about the author's writings style rubs me wrongAnd again I'm certain other readers are going to love this Especially older audiences I can see a book club skimming through this and loving it So yes I wish I could have finished this and I'll never be a proper food snob but I'm sure that others are going to enjoy this

  3. Victoria says:

    An exceptional “all things wine” education Comfortable presentation without the “wine snob” pretense If you’re remotely interested in expanding your wine knowledge and becoming confident in the wine aisle this is a must read Happy tasting

  4. Michelle says:

    This is a really neat little book perfect for people who like wine but know very little specifically about itMake no mistake wine is complicated from the color to the region in which it's grown to the correct pairing with food and the temperature at which it's served How do you know what's right? The simplest answer is to just go with what you like But if you'd like a uick and dirty education this book will give it to youElizabeth Schneider provides a wonderful look at everything you need to know about the beverage made from the humble grape in eight sections1 Tasting and Talking wine learn the basics of wine vocabulary2 How wine gets made discusses everything from the importance of the location of the vineyard to the journey to the winery3 How wine gets its flavor hint there's to it than just the grapes on a vine4 Geography Old vs New World5 Old World in depth look at the major European and Middle Eastern wine making countries6 New World in depth look at wine making in Australia New Zealand South Africa and the Americas7 Food and Wine Pairings8 Picking wines at the store or restaurantThere was so much in this book that was helpful I loved the vocabulary and historygeography and found the charts there are a lot of great photos and illustrations in this book especially those that broke down each wine and its characteristics very useful I'd recommend this one to any wine fanThank you to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for providing this ARC to review

    Elizabeth Schneider opens the door to normal people and reveals the secrets the snobby wine critics don't want you to knowShe explains all the technical terms wonderfully and explains concepts with great examples One of my favourites was on page 32 with her explanation on tannins the rabbit and the dentistThe A sections are a brilliant way to learn about wine with uestions that normal' people will askThe How to make your own wine was an interesting read uite a bit of work and knowledge goes into a bottle I think I'll leave THAT job to the experts thoughThe charts describing each grape with its smelltaste descriptors is also very usefulGreat chapters on the old and new world wine producing countries detailing the wine growing regions along with maps and wines found thereA great book to have on hand for wine tasting events or even just to learn about your favourite wine and perhaps discover a new favourite tooThank you to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me the chance to read this book

    I won a copy of this book via a Goodreads giveaway under the premise that I would read it and provide my honest feedbackThe author is a certified Sommelier and certified Specialist of Wine per the book cover Apparently she also has a podcast which I hadn’t heard of before called you guessed it Wine for Normal People What is cool about the book is it manages to mix history and geography with wine And who doesn’t like that? The sections are separated into regions with maps and discusses Old World wine vs New World wine Before going into all this though the author first describes vineyards farming and from vineyard to winery Overall an excellent reference book that is especially great for breaking out during wine parties or laid out as a coffee table book for guest to glance through A worthy book on the subject of wine

  7. Katherine says:

    The title of this book says it all I really enjoyed the tone of the author's writing and really starting with wine basics I learned a lot about wine that I didn't know and possibly than I'll ever need I almost wish there was a Cliffsnotes version that I could take with me to the store The book is a hefty hardcoverThere are great sections about how wine gets made where wine gets it's flavor and ewine and food pairings I think this books is a great option for wine novices and wine lovers alike I would reccomend this book to anyone looking to be confident in their wine selections or someone looking for something new My thanks to Goodreads and Chronicle Books for a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion

  8. Julia says:

    I received an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review Thanks to Netgalley and Chronicle BooksWine for normal people seems like the perfect book for people just getting into wine The language is easy straight forward peppered with jokes The design is incredibly easy to follow and provides a nice overview Vocabulary and all kinds of terms are being explained and it even contains practical step by step instructions eg how to taste wine properlyI don’t find this the type of book to read from cover to cover but like a fun reference book to look up one thing at a time Nonetheless this seems like a great gift for new wine lovers

  9. Kimberly Tierney says:

    This book is a fantastic resource if you want to be able to go into your first official wine tasting without looking like a rookie She has compiled the terminology that you encounter at wineries and put it into easy to understand terms so that you can go into any tasting fully prepared so that you get the most out of your experience

    45 stars A fun wine encyclopediaguide written in plain English At times I got frustrated by the author’s need to preface information with how it really wasn’t that hardnerdyscary I picked up a 300 something page wine encyclopedia I promise I’m here for the legitimately good and useful information Now on to trying wine from a bunch of new regions
