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.

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.
Very interesting information about grapes variety, regions, wine reports and so on.
More than a follow-up book, it needs to be divided into 3 or 4 volumes in order to appreciate it
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.
