Read full description of the books How to Taste. Jancis Robinson:This was an informative and pleasant read that helped me get started on understanding different wine varieties. Robinson goes over the basics of tasting and identifying different wines. She has sections on the major grape varieties and wine producing regions. The book is well-illustrated with a number of photographs. I am definitely hanging onto this one and referring to it from time to time. At this point I have no plans to become a connoisseur, but, thanks to this book, I do have a better understanding and appreciation of wine, and that, ladies and gents, heightens the enjoyment, does it not? If it is your goal to learn a bit about wines in order to improve your understanding of what makes a good wine, then you will not be disappointed.
