Wineducation: Wine in a Book
By JanicePerry_78 on April 07, 2014
I love wine, but like many things that I proclaim to love I don't know all that much about it. Being a busy Mama I tend to find something I like, in this case a Merlot or Petite Sirah, and keep moving without taking the time to figure out exactly what it is I like about it. The web is a great place to research and gather information like little eggs in a wire basket, but I do enjoy a tangible item that I can hold, mark my place, and add notes if I feel so inspired, so to fulfill those needs I turn to a good old fashion book.
I decided to create my own "I want to read Wine Biblio-List," and here are the must-haves I found:
The Wine Bible by Karen MacNeil:
What else needs to be said, nothing screams, "I am full of knowledge," quite like creating a book and calling it a "bible." Glancing at the available for view pages on Amazon it was easy to see how comprehensive the Wine Bible is, I think it would make a great wine reference book.

Wine for Dummies by Ed McCarthy & Mary Ewing-Mulligan:
It is okay to admit when you don't know something (this is what I tell my six year-old on a pretty regular basis), and once you can admit you know nothing, well, then you can start to learn and Wine for Dummies is a pretty good place to start. I wouldn't necessary classify myself as a wine "dummy," but....to read the rest of my Wine biblio-list, please visit me at my blog here: A Middle-Class Wine Mama's Review
