9781578602773: The Cork Jester's Guide to Wine: An Entertaining Companion for Tasting It, Ordering It and Enjoying It

From choosing a bottle of wine to bring to a dinner party to ordering from a restaurant wine list, many Americans are intimidated by the unpronounceable names and highbrow image of wine. Jennifer Rosen arms readers with the knowledge necessary to approach wine with confidence rather than fear. Through entertaining anecdotes, readers learn how to order with ease; what terms like "oak" and "earth" mean; what to expect from a sommelier; how to tame the red wine headache; how to cook with wine; storage and glassware tips; making wine at home; and much more. Witty and irreverent, Rosen sets novices at ease while delighting connoisseurs with her adventures and sophisticated palate.

From the Publisher:

THE CORK JESTER’S GUIDE TO WINE begins with an entertaining primer on how wine is made and the qualities of different grapes. In RosenÂ’s bawdy and highly readable style, she takes readers along on some of her wildest wine-drinking adventures and also offers tips on:

· how to crack the wine label code and taste and describe wine like those guys from Sideways

· how to impress your date ordering wine in a restaurant and how to expertly pair wine with food

· how to beat the occasional hangover and clean up last night’s carpet stains

· and much more
