The World’s Shortest Wine Book – reviews

Cover Med Res

“To write about wine so playfully, you have to know your stuff. This really is just about the best introduction to wine available.” The Independent, Books of the Year 2014 (Full review HERE)

“Despite its brevity, it is a proper wine book, brim full of useful advice shared with the same informal cheerfulness that Simon spreads in face-to-face tastings or via his online videos…a great little book, useful – and fun – even if you know quite a lot about wine.” Liz Sagues, Ham & High (Full review on pp8&9 of THIS section)

“Bought this wee book by @woodswine yesterday. Full of good tips, totally unpretentious and lovely” [from Twitter]

“What a great little book. it’s very well written and easy to understand, no lofty or wine snobbery language. Simon Woods has captured in very simple terms what enjoying wine is all about. A refreshing change from all the typically heavy tomes of wine buff elitism. I love it.” [from one of the many five-star reviews on Amazon]

“…fun to read, easy to understand and not at all pretentious. It would make a very good stocking filler and it is also available on Kindle.” Chris Scott, ThirtyFifty – full review HERE

“a bit of a romp, it’s chatty, it’s fun.” Birds with Bottle (video review HERE, featured from 6:18 onwards)


And from various UK wine merchants…

“Just in and hot off the presses The World’s Shortest Wine Book by Simon Woods. A perfect stocking filler.”

“We love this book by Simon Woods – on sale now for £5, great to give with a bottle of wine!”

“Great to see you tonight @woodswine Love the book, very clever, can sell that!”
