Item Description...
Overview
Wine on Tuesdays focuses on the basics of wine so readers can feel comfortable buying, ordering, and drinking it, and on helping readers relax around wine and integrate it into everyday life. Americans have uncorked a new enthusiasm for wine. For the generations of Americans who want wine to be a regular part of their lives, Wine on Tuesdays eschews the esoteric language of oenology for practical guidance, humorously written from the perspective of wine lovers rather than wine pedants. Wine on Tuesdays doesn't focus on number ratings, "big names," or five different ways to describe the taste of a Cabernet. Instead, it guides wine novices and experts alike through the basics of enjoying wine-from developing a palate to understanding food pairings-so that a once-in-awhile indulgence becomes a regularly rewarding pursuit.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Fun and Concise Way to Learn About Wine  Mar 16, 2009
Let me first disclose that the authors of "Wine on Tuesdays" are geographically distant cousins of mine who first told me about this book at a recent family event. Curious, I read it this weekend, then decided that it would be a disservice to its potential audience to not write a brief review...

This book is perfect for someone (like me!) who loves to drink wine and wants to know a bit more about it, but has been overwhelmed by (and thus has retained just about nothing from) every other wine book he or she has read and wine course he or she has taken (and I've done both several times). It's written in a casual, fun style, and is concise enough that you don't need to edit through the "more than you really want to know stuff" in order to get to "the important stuff"; the authors here have done that editing for you, thus leaving you with a body of wine knowledge that's both easy to absorb and easy to remember.

Look at it this way: With this book, for the cost of one moderately-priced bottle of vino that you'll p--s away the next morning and probably forget about shortly thereafter, you can have a reference base of knowledge that will last a lifetime.
 
Charming and fun read about wine  Dec 16, 2008
I thought this was such a fun, charming read. I loved the little stories about "wine pioneers" and other little anecdotes--they were wonderful little tidbits of information and made this book very approachable. But "Wine on Tuesdays" contains lots of solid information and common-sense advice, too. The weekend after I read the book, I was out for dinner, saw "Fume Blanc" on the wine list, and remembered from "Wine on Tuesdays" that Fume Blanc is basically Sauvignon Blanc--and knew that wasn't what we wanted to order. I also appreciated the breakdowns of wine recommendations into "everyday," "Friday night," and "high roller" categories. After all, sometimes you just want to celebrate making it through another week!
 
Finally a non-snobby wine book  Aug 19, 2008
I love wine, but I know nearly nothing about it. I mean, I know red vs white and I know I generally like cabernet. That's the extent of my wine knowledge... until very recently when I read Wine on Tuesdays. First things first: Deb is a colleague. I say that upfront because I hate reading this site reviews that are obviously written by friends of an author who are trying not to appear as if they are friends. I always know the "this is the best book I've ever read" lines come from friends and family though. So, I'm not trying to do a cover up here. I love Deb, but I wouldn't review her book unless it was good... and it is.

Deb and Keith found a way to educate me about all things wine without making me feel stupid (and it's easy to make me feel stupid about wine because I actually AM stupid about wine). I especially valued their discussion about French wine because I generally get nervous at the wine store whenever I pick up a bottle of the French stuff. I never can figure out the label... it's a complete crap shoot regarding what to buy. I usually do it with an eeny meany miney moe. Half the time, I can't even figure out if it's a French red or a French white. So I generally stick with Napa wines instead. But Deb and Keith explain all wine labels, and then even explain why French labels are so confusing! They break wines into different grape varieties, and, among each variety, give best picks for three categories: 1) affordable every day wines, 2) higher end Friday night wines 3) super expensive wines that we all dream of tasting but few of us can actually afford.

They also break down those descriptions about the taste of wine that often make me laugh. Like mineral. What? Well, duh. I now know that a mineral wine tastes like rocks.

They also enlightened me as to how to taste wine. That was helpful because I often get nervous when a waiter is staring me down, waiting for me to take that first sip. I learned about which wines should breathe and why. I also learned why some wines taste better as you drink them. I always thought it was because I was getting drunker and less picky about the taste, but there's a scientific reason for this phenomenon!

From how to pair wine with food to what type of glass to use, they've covered all of the confusing bases about wine. I enjoyed the book so much that it's now in my purse, so I can consult it at the wine store and when dining out. Oh, yeah, another nice feature of the book: it's small enough to fit in your standard Mom-sized purse.
