From AudioFile

At last a series of crash courses that educate people on the move! The Instant Genius series focuses on various hot topics to help listeners grasp information quickly. In this wine book, the listener will learn, in less than an hour, about the evolution of the American grape root and the European grape vine, the difference between a merlot and a Bordeaux, the procedure for proper tasting, how wines get their names, and many other facts to fascinate and dazzle others at a cocktail party. The listener can sit back, relax and enjoy learning. B.J.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

A great overview of both red and white wines, covering a broad range of issues including origin, taste, selection of wine, year, etc. Both my appreciation and interest in wine has increased. Ideal for the wine lover that want to know more.

I love the Instant Genius series. The tapes, especially the one on wine, are packed with a lot of information. There is no long drawn out time wasting introduction. I look forward to listening to this tape over and over.
