Don’t know to open the bottle? Unsure how to order wine in a restaurant? Want to know how to pour like a pro? Have no fear because this book gives clear straightforward answers to wine questions. You will also learn what to expect from some of the most popular types of wine – in both price and flavor.

I liked the list of top wine myths such as:
- Expensive wines must be good
- There is a perfect wine
- Only snobs drink wine
- Bubbly wines are only for special occasions
- Screw caps are only for cheap wines
- If the cork breaks, the wine is bad
- Savory wines are better than sweet wines
- Pink wines are for sissies
You can learn the answers to all of these myths plus much more in this book.
The Pocket Idiot’s Guide to Wine sells for $ 9.95 and will have you swirling and sipping like a pro in no time.
