Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to experiencing wine, everyone seems to be an expert with an opinion—too dry, too sweet, too robust, too tangy. It’s easy to get caught up in thinking you have to enjoy an expensive bottle of wine because some expert tells you it’s good. But Wineocology is here to tell you it is not about what the experts have to say about wine. Rather Wineocology teaches you, the reader, how to taste, about how to differentiate the good from the bad from the downright awful for your own palate and enjoyment, and about how to become an expert wine-know.
            Wineocology touches briefly on the tree V’s of wine (viticulture, vinification, varieties) before getting to the meat of the book—the Simple Sommelier System, a comprehensive strengthening system for the senses. Through sight, smell, touch, and taste, you will learn how to observe wine, what factors to observe for each sense, and how to tie all of this information together to understand what wines work best for your palate, regardless of the price tag or outside reviews.

Synopsis:

Wineocology is not about what the experts have to say about wine and its various varieties and appellations, but rather its about teaching the reader how to taste, about how to differentiate the good from the bad to the downright awful, and about how to become an expert wine-know. In short, it is an informative guide for women on how to taste wine using Wineocologys unique three-part sensory-based simple sommelier system, complete with full-color photography and lots of spunk and personality.

Synopsis:

Take the mystery out of Merlot and put the pleasure back into pairing and sharing wine with sensory secrets from Hollywood’s Sommelier! Caitlin Stansbury’s revolutionary book will teach you to understand what wines you like and why you like them so that you can evaluate and enjoy their sensual delights on your own terms, regardless of price tags or product reviews. The crown jewel of Wineocology is Caitlin’s "Simple Sommelier System," the groundbreaking program that changes the way you see, smell, touch, and taste wine. A strengthening system for your senses, Wineocology shows you how to sharpen your eyes, nose, and mouth so that the information they provide is used to expand and enhance your relationship with wine. Whether you are an adventurous beginner or a seasoned connoisseur, Wineocology will make you an expert wine-know!
