Wine for Normal People, the Book
Wine for Normal People is a down-to-earth resource for anyone seeking an introduction to the world of wine. It’s the perfect book (if I do say so myself) for people also looking to get more detailed info in a straightforward, easy to understand way!
It took me a LONG time to finish it, but it’s beautiful, well-researched, and clearly full of solid information, snark, and opinions – just like the podcast!
What you can expect
Explanations of wine vocabulary
WFNP helps you understand the language of wine, including how to taste, how wine gets its flavor, and a quickie tour to making wine (with the factors that actually matter called out) — no afterthoughts or back of the book glossary because these terms are essential in fully understanding the wine world
A trip around the wine world
WFNP drills down into every major country in the Old and New Wine worlds, with a deep dive into the communes of France, regions of Italy, the AVAs of California, and info on stuff from Georgia to Slovenia to Lebanon to Canada! You can go as dorky and detailed or as general as you want
Practical advice on how to shop for wine
Whether you’re selecting a wine in a store or restaurant, WFNP provides very detailed (but not prescriptive) food and wine pairing information, tips on travel and serving temperatures
AND…. All of this is delivered in the easy-to-digest normal person tone just like the podcast. I hope you can hear me talking to you in your head while you read.
