Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In How to Love Wine, New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov examines why the American wine culture produces anxiety and suggests how readers can fearlessly develop a sense of discovery and wonder as they explore and enjoy the diversity and complexity of the world of wine. With warmth, candor, and intelligent authority, Asimov interweaves his professional knowledge and insights with engaging personal stories of his lifelong love affair with wine. In a direct, down-to-earth manner, Asimov discusses favorite vineyards, wine's singular personalities, the flaws of wine criticism, and current wine issues.

Throughout, he incorporates in-depth discussions of beautiful wines, both easy to find and rare, and pays special attention to those that have been particularly meaningful to him. Thought-provoking and enjoyable, How to Love Wine will transform readers into true wine lovers.

Synopsis:

Eric Asimov, the acclaimed chief wine critic for the New York Times, has written a beautiful and thought-provoking combination memoir and manifesto, How to Love Wine.

With charm, wit, and intelligence, Asimov tells how he went from writing beer reviews for his high school newspaper on Long Island to the most coveted job in the industry. He evaluates the current wine culture, discussing trends both interesting and alarming, and celebrates the extraordinary pleasures of wine while, at the same time, questioning the conventional wisdom about wine.

Whether youre a connoisseur or a novice, already love wine or want to know it better, How to Love Wine: A Memoir and Manifesto is the book for you.
