5.0 out of 5 stars What a great Idea!!! July 24 2008
By Kathleen M. Ranke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Spiral-bound
My daughter ordered one and loved it so much that I ordered four more to give as gifts to our wine loving friends. Everyone was so impressed and they all use them all the time!! The size is such that they can carry them in their purse and when they find a wine they like they can just write it down. Same applies if they find one they hate! The book appears to be well made and should hold up for a long time.

3.0 out of 5 stars good little book Nov. 25 2011
By Nicol Casarotto - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It is a good little book to give the basics on wine. Other reviews on the spiral bound book indicated that you could take notes on wines tried out. On the kindle version this is not available, but otherwise its it is handy if paired with a notebook application, where you can take notes. I have done this when going to wine tasting, easier than carrying a pen & paper.
4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Introduction to the World of Wine Dec 12 2013
By Robert Thune - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the author's no-nonsense approach to wine. The essential components of wine were explained very clearly and with out the fan fare and mystery that generally surrounds wine appreciation. I also was interested to note that the author included information on grape varietals and the major wine regions of the world. This book would serve as a wonderful introduction into the world of wine and would serve to deflate some of the myth that could prevent people from relaxing and enjoying a truly magnificent beverage.
