“This really is just about the
best introduction to wine available”
The Independent, Books of the Year, 2014

First of all, you should know what The World’s Shortest Wine Book is NOT…

It’s NOT a worthy textbook containing more information than anyone normal could ever need.
It’s NOT a banal go-and-buy-this-without-using-your-brain guide.
And it’s NOT a book recommending wines that you either can’t find or can’t afford.

Not that I’ve anything against those types of book. It’s just that I wanted to write something for normal people, as in those who enjoy wine but aren’t too precious about it.

So in this guide to 21 ways to get more out of a bottle of wine, among other things you’ll discover:

  • What is the Punk Rock of wine
  • When & why you should keep red wine in the fridge
  • The ins-and-outs of Five + One
  • Why more wine merchants should be like Julian
  • What the Village People, Tom & Jerry and Sausages have to do with wine

And lots more besides…

    It may be the worlds shortest wine book, but if it isn’t the best, I’ll be very surprised. Particularly found the chapters on the (not so special) special offers, 5 + 1 & temperature very helpful. Though the whole book was great for a wine novice like myself. Shall get cracking with “I don’t know much about wine, but I know what I like”.

    Thanks Anthony!

    I couldn’t agree more with the previous reviewer, I have thoroughly enjoyed this short but informative book. On to the next one … ‘I don’t know much about wine ….’

    Hope you enjoy it Tricia!
