Inside Tips from Top Wine Experts

 

Michael Mondavi, Jacques Pépin, Gina Gallo, and Kevin Zraly are just four of the contributors to Wine Secrets—a compilation of tips and tricks from today’s top wine experts, with advice on everything from buying and tasting to cooking and pairing. Readers will discover:

 

     •  How to find the best wines by sticking to the classics

     •  How to judge whether a wine is “good”

     •  How to act like you know what you’re doing when ordering wine

     •  How to guesstimate wine style from packaging clues

     •  How to taste wine like a pro

     •  And much, much more!

Synopsis:

In Wine Secrets, forty of the world's top wine experts share the tricks, techniques, and wisdom they've learned through decades of experience. Celebrity chef Jacques Pepin shares the best uses for leftover wine in the kitchen. Sommelier Oliver Boru proves that you sometimes can judge a wine by its label. Restaurateur Piero Selvaggio tells diners the best way to send back an unacceptable bottle. Plus tips on tasting, drinking, ordering, storing, and more.

Each technique is described in the expert's own words, along with a short profile and commentary from author/sommelier Marnie Old. With advice ranging from the basics (does anything pair well with broccoli?) to the extreme (yes, you can freeze open bottles of wine ), Wine Secrets will appeal to beginners as well as established oenophiles.
