Secrets of Wine free pdf "A few years ago I applied for a job on a wine magazine. 'Tell us about yourself,' said my prospective boss, 'Well, I don't really know very much about wine.' I was offered the job anyway and I've spent almost every day since asking questions about wine. Asking questions is the only way to understand wine - and some of the answers will surprise you, not least that wine is far simpler to understand than you think. Forget the wine snobbery, the "has a bouquet reminiscent of elderberries drying on a nun's bicycle seat" pretentious language that seems to dominate the world of wine. What I offer is an insiders' guide to the real world of wine, the kind of information that a good sommelier will provide you with. Cheers!" Giles Klime. "Secrets of wine" is about the art of free-thinking drinking. Wine over the past twenty or so years has become a massive industry full of spin hype and mega-marketing. Here Giles Kime cuts through the crap, and gives you expert advice on choosing wine that works for you and your friends. So, if you always go for the Chateau Neuf because it's reassuringly expensive, "Secrets of wine" is for you! Find out how to: Get past the label and the hype- Power-up your palate- Get the best out of tasting and glasses- Distinguish colour and character- Wines that taste of the weather- Discover which foods really go with which wine- Keep wine properly saved and know when to drink it.
