Favorite Wine Books?


94930tabednar

I am looking to read a new book about wine. I have been inspired by the monthly give-a-way to look into some new reading material.

For info about the Snooth Give-a-way: http://www.snooth.com/sweeps/snooth-zesterdaily-wine-library-giveaway/

I have only purchased a few books and have only finsihed like one. I am not a very fast reader and am looking for something informative but easy to read.

Books I have:

  1. Wine Bible - Great all-inclusive book but not necessarily and easy read. --
    http://www.amazon.com/Wine-Bible-Karen-MacNeil/dp/1563054345/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1316522148&sr=8-3
     
  2. Windows on the World - Must have. May go through this one again.
    http://www.amazon.com/Windows-World-Complete-Wine-Course/dp/1402767676/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1316522233&sr=1-2
     
  3. The Spirituality of Wine - Interesting read about who religion and wine intertwine.
    http://www.amazon.com/Spirituality-Wine-Tom-Harpur/dp/1896836631/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1316522323&sr=1-1

  • I love Windows on the World... very informative.  I also really like Mark Oldman's Brave New World of Wine.  The book gives a lot of great suggestions and really gets you thinking about trying new wines.

  • Wine for Dummies - http://www.amazon.com/Wine-Dummies-Ed-McCarthy/dp/0470045795/

    Well-written, somewhat humorous introduction to the world of wine, it's become sort of a standard tutorial for layfolk.

  • i would have to second the wine for dummies book... 

    but my fav is the Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia.... but this is more of, well, encyclopedia... not sure if it's a page turner, cover to cover... i've read it through... and watched paint dry... you get the idea : )

    i'm getting ready to start Judgement of Paris, California vs France and the 1976 Paris Tasting That Revolutionized the Wine World, by George M. Taber... i think it'll be a good read....
