Publisher's Summary

Actor and wine expert Julian Curry has devised a unique audiobook guide to wine which takes the listener to the heart of winemaking and wine drinking in a clear but light-hearted manner. However rich and complex the subject of wine may be, he insists it is also hugely rewarding and great fun.

Curry's informative and entertaining program begins with a description of work in the vineyard and cellar. It outlines the many choices faced by grape-grower and winemaker, resulting in the variety of different styles of wine produced. It continues with wine's journey from winery to gullet, with advice on cellaring, buying, serving food-matching and tasting. And it concludes with a lengthy section devoted to all the major wine regions, in the Old World and the New.

    "Way too much valuable info for just one volume"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Without any doubt for us -wine lovers, any guide to learn more about wine is always to be read or listened to; however this book has a tremendous amount of info that does not give you time to digest, rather keeps pounding and pounding. It got to a point which I decided to stop listening to it.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Very interesting information about grapes variety, regions, wine reports and so on.


    Do you think A Guide to Wine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    More than a follow-up book, it needs to be divided into 3 or 4 volumes in order to appreciate it


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I am not an expert on the matter, is is DEFINITELY not for begginers. Needs more basic information to guide the listener step by step.

    "OK book"

    Very informative and contains a lot of wine info. Almost too detailed to remember. Also a bit dry at times.
