OK, it's refreshing to take the seriousness out of wine and show everybody that it's for their occasion. Putting all seriousness aside, though, wine is serious. If your willing to go out and buy and then read a book about it, then it's serious. Now this doesn't mean you should be afraid, it simply means wine is something worth experiencing and your more than eager. go for it, read this book, and more importantly drink the wine. If you, like me, are already past GO then don't slow down for this book. Read this book without expectations of rising to connoisership and read it before your glass gets half full.
