WINE IS A VERY con­fus­ing area for the lay­man. There’s plenty of jar­gon and a plethora of va­ri­eties that mean fac­ing a wine list is of­ten daunt­ing. Be­ing told what to taste and how to taste it, be­ing dic­tated to about what we should en­joy mud­dies the wa­ters and leaves many feel­ing over­whelmed. Chris Mor­ri­son, an award-win­ning som­me­lier, recog­nises this and hopes to help. At­trac­tive and ap­proach­able, this book dis­tills the facts into con­sum­able por­tions. It recog­nises the fact that no one wants to be wrong when it comes to wine, but also en­dorses the idea that there is, in fact, such a thing as sub­jec­tiv­ity. Im­por­tantly, this isn’t a book re­served for the wine elite, it’s for peo­ple who love food and want to make the most of their din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.
