This book is the main reason I passed my Introductory Sommelier Exam. I began reading this book and making flashcards 6 weeks before the exam. I passed with flying colors!!! I don't come from the wine industry or service industry, so everything was foreign to me. I sat down and read at least chapters from this book every day and was ready for the intro exam!!!

First of all, this was print and actually many wine regions including varietal information is incorrect or incomplete. A simple example is information on Veneto: even the name of the grape was changed from prosecco to glera in , this book mentions none of it, and the DOCG regions are incomplete.

The grapes of Veneto was limited by Pinot Grigio, corvina and prosecco glera , but no mention of garganega, verdicchio bianco, trebbiano toscana, pinot bianco, rondinella, molinara and negrara. Pretty omission! Not a good one as a prep course. Otherwise, good basic information for the lay person. I'll make this short and sweet - although I've "been into" wines for years, I decided that it was time to become certified.

This book is an excellent start and very well written. It's written at a level that anyone with an interest could understand without going into the sometimes dizzying details that can be found in other serious wine books. This is a true textbook; its layout, structure, and quizzes at the end of each chapter are helpful and educational.

I would recommend this for anyone - whether a novice who's just beginning to learn about wines, someone who is starting to work in the wine industry restaurant, winery, etc.

I've been cooking professionally for a while now and wine has been one of those things I've known I should learn more about, but just haven't gotten around to doing. While I won't say this book has made me a master sommelier, I will say I now have a pretty decent foundation on the subject of wine. It's actually pretty cool. The book nicely summarizes the history of wine, how to taste wine which is super cool because it's all based on deduction , a brief chapter on food and beverage pairings, the more popular regions in the world where wine is produced, and even talks about beer and spirits.

I just really appreciate how much less intimidated I am towards wine now. This book held my interest very well and I found it fun to read. Studying for my sommelier exam and bought Fantastic book. Studying for my sommelier exam and bought a bunch of recommended books but this is by far the best. Great layout, easy to read, love the little quizzes at the end of each chapter. Reminds me of something I would have used for a college course. Does get a bit repetitive in the beginning few chapters but definitely helped me master that information.
