Top Customer Reviews

Tony Aspler, The Wine Guy, has a new book called The Five Minute Wine Book. It’s a new compilation of earlier posts, notes, articles, thoughts, remembrances and columns for different publications. Doubtful you’ve seen this material before and if you did, you forgot it. No excuses now. For a truly modest price you get a wealth of top-notch information from a master taster.
Topics include champagne (Mr. Aspler’s favourite—goes with anything—even bad company) including the story of his wedding champagne, and the prevention of a near-disaster!)

Mr Aspler brings clarity to claret, and has a few reservations about “reserva” (and its variations).He discusses pregnancy and wine, Romanian, Canadian, Italian and many other countries’ wines. He comments on Bluffers Guides, and on the differences between and among cognac, brandy, and armagnac (with recommendations). He discusses wine and room temperature, whether you should drink red wine with fish and a myriad other subjects, all in 5 minute or less quick reads.

Fast, fun and informative on a great topic!
