A winner under the tree this morning - gave it to my son who really does know wines - he loved the book, and it passed muster with him! Love it, and I learned some things as I read it while wrapping. thumbs up.

Book of Kells, December 13, 2013 (view all comments by Book of Kells)
This book was a gift for friends, but I had to check it out before I wrapped it. It is easy to read and use as a guide to learn more about wine. Betts wants everyone to enjoy wine, and says that "Wine is grocery, not a luxury." When my friends unwrapped the book, they were surprised at the scratch & sniff element, but amused, too. They thought it was a fun approach to what can be a somewhat complex topic. They were looking forward to exploring their tastes.

"Staff Pick" by ,

I love drinking wine but have always felt a little overwhelmed when choosing a bottle. Notes of pepper with a smoky finish? What does that even mean? After reading (and scratching) through Master Sommelier Richard Betts's approachable scratch-and-sniff board book, I now feel like a verifiable vino expert.

"Review" by , "Smart, fun, enlightening, and refreshingly free of snobbery."
"Review" by , "The master sommelier Richard Betts's clever new scratch-and-sniff book is likely to broaden the novice's appreciation of wine, explaining how aromas relate to different varietals....A useful chart that ties bouquets to wines is tucked inside."
"Review" by , "Fiendishly clever."
"Synopsis" by , A Master Sommelier introduces the basics of wine through scratch-and-sniff stickers.
