8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Debbie Trenholm - Sommelier, The Savvy Grapes on Aug. 9 2006
Format: Hardcover
There are countless wine books, some historic, some novels, some technical and some instructional. Yet, in Red, White & Drunk All Over, Natalie MacLean shares her discovery and experiences of the different facets of wine with an enlightening twist. Each chapter is intoxicating, written with MacLean's wit and humble perspective that makes her indeed 'The World's Best Drink Writer.' This book gives you fascinating first-hand experiences by Natalie and stories about the personalities in the wine world that you can share with friends at your next dinner party. Enjoying wine is lighter and more refreshing after devouring this book.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By David Gourlay on Sept. 18 2006
Format: Hardcover
Natalie MacLean's elegant prose allows us to lose ourselves in a world that any aspiring sommelier or the most casual of wine drinkers can appreciate. Her book is an inspired passion through rich and engaging language and emotion that is at one stage, humourous, and another, comforting.

It is a triumph and a must for those of us whose evenings may be seduced by a fine wine.

By Peg TOP 500 REVIEWER on Jan. 23 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read both her books, signed up for newsletters, bought too much wine, added apps to the phone and bought a wine fridge. A 55 bottle wine fridge. I may 'need' a second if I don't seek help. I drove to seven LCBOs to get all Beaujolais Nouveau releases. Before reading this enabler's books, the last bottle of wine I bought for home was 1977.

This is well written, interesting, humorous as well as very informative book. I would recommend it to anyone interested in learning about wines. I have given the book to friends who were unaware of the book and they are finding it as I have described it.

Format: Paperback
Natalie MacLean's Red, White, and Drunk All Over is a humous, descriptive, highly educational, nonfictional work of art. This book is extremely well-rounded as MacLean touches many, many spheres within the world of wine. From food and wine pairing, to ancient French vineyards, and from different wine-making processes to working as a sommelier in a prestigious restaurant, MacLean truly covers all the bases in her novel. She even incorporates little snippets of geographically-relevant war history, tells funny jokes, and translates wine slang and French.

MacLean travels to Burgundy, France, and writes of her encounters with prestigious vineyards and their owners. It was an eye-opening experience to read of her travels, and she describes each vineyard's wine-making process so clearly, that one really gains an understanding of the aging and bottling processes. Throughout her book, MacLean covers red, white and rosé wines, champagne, and other sparking wines. Thus her reach is expansive and great for comparison among wines.

She discusses the influence of powerful wine critics, yet is careful to not glorify their ratings. This was much appreciated as a beginner wine reader like myself, because it allowed me to form my own opinion about numerical ratings. This was common within in chapters - she rarely (if at all) formed a strong opinion on anything controversial. Again, this neutral stand point was appreciated as an new, easily-influenced wine book reader.

MacLean also explains in simple, direct english the complicated concepts of biodynamics, vintage charts, aging processes, and (for me) the dreaded Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée system.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Randy Kun on Jan. 31 2007
Format: Hardcover
Wine a dry subject? Often, yes. But not this book. No wine snobs prattling on here. It's a thoroughly entertaining read and a great way to learn more about wine and regions without feeling like you're plowing through a textbook. I really liked the way it's written as a series of personal experiences, rich with characters, anecdotes and geography. Natalie's writing style pulls it all together into a humourous informing blend that makes it hard to put down.
