In this friendly introductory guide, food and wine writer Leslie Brenner tells how to:
Pour and taste wine
Develop a taste memory
Order from a wine list
Select a wine at the store
Match food with wine

In addition, helpful sidebars illuminate such subjects as:
How--and why--to swirl without sloshing
Disarming a snotty waiter
Ten great wines to bring to a dinner party
Going beyond California Chardonnay
Starting your own cellar for under $100

Along the way, Lettie Teague's funny and informative cartoons enhance the text and make great devices for remembering the most important facts. Before long,
your old standby, Chateau Screwtop, will be a distant memory. Accessible and concise, Fear of Wine will appeal to anyone who wants to know a little bit about a subject that can bring great pleasure.

At last, a guide that is as fun to read as wine is to drink!

From the Publisher:

For anyone who's ever been intimidated by a wine list, bullied by a wine snob, or overwhelmed at the wine store, finally there's a book for you. An alternative to all the hefty tomes on the bookshelf, Fear of Wine is the first refreshingly informal, simple guide to the grape. So take a deep breath, turn to page one, and just keep telling yourself, "It's only a beverage, it's only a beverage, it's only a beverage...."
