Book Review: THE NEW WINE RULES – A GENUINELY HELPFUL GUIDE TO EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

🍷”π™³πš›πš’πš—πš” πš πš’πš—πšŽ πš πš’πšπš‘ πš“πš˜πš’.”🍷

My husband works as a winemaker, and I’ve learned so much from him about viniculture and winemaking. I’m still such a novice when it comes to everything else wine-related, and at times, I find it intimidating.

Perfect for me, The New Wine Rules by Jon BonnΓ© begins with the premise that drinking wine is a joyful activity and over time, a cadre of experts has diminished that joyfulness by creating an unnecessary mystique around wine tasting. BonnΓ© argues that following a few principlesβ€”the new wine rulesβ€”will give everyone the knowledge he or she needs to select and enjoy wine.

Each rule is accompanied with a brief one to two page easy-to-understand explanation, and the book is gorgeously illustrated. BonnΓ© explains the (un)importance of price, why red and white wine glasses differ, how to make good food-wine pairings, and more.

I recommend The New Wine Rules both for wine novices as well as experienced wine drinkers who want exposure to a new paradigm of thinking about wine.

If you are a wine drinker, what’s your favorite wine?
