I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
My son is a winemaker and although I only drink wine when he brings it home on holidays, I’m learning to appreciate it more and more. When I had the chance to read this book, I thought it would be interesting to learn more about wine and what exactly my son does. I wasn’t disappointed.
There’s a variety of information in 50 Ways to Love Wine More. There is a lot of information about wine tastings but it also contains history, info about different wines from different regions, how one small thing can change a wine (such as temperature), how wine is made (briefly), drinking wine with everyday foods (even hot dogs!), and so much more. This is a book that could be read in a couple of days but I found reading 2 or 3 chapters at a time was better because there was so much information to absorb.
If you’re wine drinker and want to learn more about wines, this would be a good resource.
