Buying the Right Wine Every Time...pretty cool idea. 13. Juni 2014
Von Eve Bushman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Flexibler Einband
When I received a copy of the book “Buy the Right Wine Every Time” to review, a quick leaf through it and I thought, no problem, it’s just a grouping of writer Tom Stevenson’s wine picks, and immediately discounted it. Why? Because wine books telling you what to buy are dated pretty much as soon as they are published, as the vintage year they reviewed may either be 1. No longer available or 2. Not the vintage year that was just released that people want to know about.

Neither was the case with Stevenson’s book as he, as stated on page V of the forward, only selected “branded” wines to focus on as “A Branded wine should be consistent by definition.” That made me think of a couple of wines that I’ve bought consistently through the years as the winemaker has found a way to nearly duplicate the taste no matter what happened in the fields. I quickly thumbed through the edition and found what I was thinking of: Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (page 149) for one and an early starter wine for me, Fetzer Sundial Chardonnay (page 103).

I decided to read the book as leafing would not do. Some general observations right off that bat were that I dug are the photographed color labels to help people recognize a wine quickly, color-coded headings like pale green for some whites and red for reds, and the wines were listed alphabetically by winery name.

Then, as you read, you will find that Stevenson has detailed each of his selections with further facts. For every single wine he includes four subheadings: “What is it?” “What does it taste like?” “If you like this then try with confidence…” and “Try something completely different.”

I liked this section as every single wine has a little information – such as what grapes were used, a description of the wine, what growing area and/or how much time in oak, what it will taste like, and others you would like if you like this wine, etc.

At the end of the book is a short section called, “The 20 most useful wine tips.” Readers are told up front that it’s up to them to use this section – and only if they feel the need or interest in learning more. The 20 facts are basic, logical and understandable.

My own conclusion, while I admit to buying the Kim Crawford this way I don’t buy my wine based on generic branding. However, for the wine 101er, or someone that is limited to grocery stores, or on a tight wine budget – there is nothing wrong with the idea. In fact, I kind of liked not only the simplicity, but the fact that this is not a wine book that will be obsolete any time soon.

Great new guide for the casual wine drinker 15. April 2014
Von David A. Chambers - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Flexibler Einband
Tom Stevenson, a prolific wine writer and respected authority on the subject (including The Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia!), is known for tomes whose pages are mostly flipped by those training to be wine experts. But he's taken a different tack with his latest book - 'Buy The Right Wine Every Time'.

He's written this book for those new to wine. I wish I'd had access to such a book when I was a newbie, some 35 years ago. It appeals to anyone who needs some wine competency but doesn't have the time or inclination to pursue it as a hobby. I don't know such people, but I hear they exist in large numbers and that some of them are actually quite pleasant to be around.

Be sure not to miss the back section of the book, wherein Tom provides his '20 most useful wine tips'. He's not kidding, these are useful tips. If you're new to wine, learn these 20 tips and you'll know more about wine than most people ever will. (Cautionary note: Don't be too eager to show off your new-found skills. The world of wine is a never-ending warren of curiosity, with new questions that arise at every turn. A single lifetime is insufficient to learn all the twists and turns. And believe me, if you have a healthy dose of insatiable curiosity, you'll find Tom's 20 tips as nothing more than a good start. Good on ya!)

Easy to use 1. Juni 2014
Von J. Seto - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Flexibler Einband Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoy wine but I don't have the time to study them. I basically rely on wine store's ratings or whatever the restaurants offer. I borrowed this book from the library at first, then I purchased one for my self and two for each of my brothers. It is so easy to use and my current favorite wines are listed in the book with " if you like this, try ......". Love it!

Another great feature is the wines are popular selections where you can find them almost everywhere I bought a wine guide and many of the wines are so specialized they don't have them near where I live. Unless you are a wine connoisseur, you will fine this book very very useful.

Know Your Wines 4. Juni 2014
Von Scotty - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Flexibler Einband Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great book for those of us who like a glass of wine, but haven't a clue as the quality of what we're buying. The book is divided into two basic sections. One part describes different wines, whites, reds, fortefied, sparking and rose. Another section of the book lists various wineries and their wines from "To Die For", to "Recommended".A suggested price range is also given. Now you can visit a wine store with a list of wines that interest you and fit your pocketbook. The author stresses that this is merely a guide, that you should feel free to experiment. This book is just fun to read, well worth the cost, a whopping $9.54. Enjoy.

Excellent Guide ! 24. April 2014
Von Don N - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Flexibler Einband Verifizierter Kauf
Just as everyday guide to good wines. I like the format, the descriptions, and the ease of locating an appropriate wine. Couldn't ask for more in a wine guide. Better than anything else in my wine library.
