Annotation:
Mark Oldman wants to convince us all that wine appreciation is simply not that difficult. "Consider me your wine sherpa," he advises, while he helps you navigate the road to fine wines. Focusing on plain old common sense tempered with plenty of solid information, Oldman breaks down the basics of wine into 108 chapters covering such issues as proper pronunciation, what wine with what food, terroir, brut vs. sec, wine storage, label decoding, and more. Perhaps best of all, he stops frequently to recommend his own picks and those of famous oenophiles in a series of "On My Table" sidebars.
