Reviews

"Entertaining, enthusiastically written and uniquely narrative. Fresh take on a subject that's traditionally hard to grasp for most casual enthusiasts. P Strayer - lighten up, this isn't a book for wine snobs!" —MDW London

"Was given this book as a birthday present (perhaps an obvious choice for a vino lover :-) ) and was nicely surprised. Good combination of road trip anecdotes, celeb stories and most importantly, tasting notes! A great holiday read." —Pumpkin Pie
