(NewsUSA) – Serious wine connoisseurs can make wine seem intimidating, but Ed McCarthy and Mary Ewing-Mulligan, the authors of “Wine For Dummies” (Wiley, $21.99), say wine can be appreciated by everyone.
The fourth edition of the guide, which is part of the popular “For Dummies” series, provides updates on wineries both new and old and where they stand in quality today. The book also contains up-to-date pricing information on the authors’ favorite wines.
“Wine For Dummies” helps readers conquer the numerous grape varieties and wine regions of the world and shows them how to select the best wines for the best price. The book also exposes 10 “wine myths” (for example, just because a wine is expensive or old doesn’t mean that it is good) and shares the secrets to understanding lists and labels; wine tasting and storing; and pairing wine with food.
“Wine For Dummies” is available in bookstores nationwide and through www.dummies.com.
