"No need to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy this book. Written by 29 different authors, it reads like a good collection of short stories. This title is suitable for anyone wishing to learn more about wine but sophisticated enough for aficionados. A good choice for readers who want more information about the culture and context of wine consumption, delivered in an engaging format." --"Library Journal "

A Wine Blogger Review - from The Wine Cask Blog 3. September 2012
Von W. Cripe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Feel: easy to pick up, hard to put down.
Finish: lasting.
Overall: From time to time we at The Wine Cask Blog - [...] - review items other than the beverage in the bottle. This is one of those times. Our friends at Sterling Publishing (a B&N subsidiary) sent us this book to review.

In short, I love this book. It is a collection of essays and articles curated from the New York Times' collection that started in 1972. Each article is fun and expresses something of the wonder of wine. Because these are short articles (rarely more than 3 pages) the book lends itself well to quick, easy reading. You can pick it up, say, while waiting for your dinner host to come back from the grill outside, and get through a single chapter. You can read several while waiting for your decanted bottle to breathe.

There are recipes. There are rants against the pretentiousness of wine review language. There are homages to favorite bottles, memorable experiences and unexpected finds.

Two in the collection stood out for me. The first, "Big and Beautiful: Lafite for 12" is an enchanting article about a family who found an imperiale of 1986 Chateau Lafite-Rothschild in their father's cellar after his passing. The article is a loving story of the meal they created around the immense bottle of wine (yes, they opened it!) to honor their father. It is warm and enchanting.

The second, "Buried Treasure in Baltic Has Vintage Taste" is the story of a diver who finds a sunken ship wreck and a treasure of old but still drinkable Champagne. We're talking early-mid 1800's Champagne. The story has all the adventure of finding sunken treasure and the care of the subject that someone who honors both antiquities and magnificent sparkling wines can conjure.

My only small criticism is that the titles of the articles give away little as to what is in the article. This means that articles you love may be difficult to find again without marring the book. I would also like to see an eBook version.

There are many articles packed into the book. Like I mentioned above, it is easily accessible for a casual wine enthusiast. Yet it has a depth that will please the oenophile on your gift list. I highly recommend this book.

Add this Book to Your Book Shelf 10. Oktober 2012
Von Kathy S. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The New York Times Book of Wine (2012) is a comprehensive collection of The New York Times wine articles published over three decades. In addition to writing the Foreword, Eric Asimov has many articles in this vast collection. Other authors include Frank J. Prial, Terry Robards and R. W. Apple Jr. and many more. Most articles are two to four pages long - perfect when you do not have a long time to read. Articles vary in style some are humorous and others on the serious in tone. Together they offer an insight into history of wine during the 20th century.

This book would be wonderful to read on a cold, snowy day while sitting next to a roaring fire and sipping a mulled wine or perhaps on a warm day while sitting by the pool and enjoying a Sangria.

Any reader will undoubtedly pick up some interesting tidbits between the first page and the end of the book. Consider adding The New York Times Book of Wine to your book shelf.
Great collection of articles 20. November 2014
Von monkuboy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

This is a very nice collection of articles over the years from the New York Times. Even though some are quite old, none of them are dated. There are no wine reviews per se, but just a variety of articles dealing with various aspects of the wine world. Since they come from the newspaper columns, they're short, to the point and easy to read and digest.

Some were more interesting than others and I skipped a few that didn't appeal to me from the get go (mainly ones on non-wine items such as cognac) but on the whole I read nearly all the articles and feel this was a truly worthwhile collection. There's lots of wisdom in the book, too, regarding the world of wine reviews, tastings, jargon and what goes on in the winemaking process.

Highly recommended.
