About the Author
Mark Oldman is one the country’s leading wine personalities. Bon Appètit described his style as “winespeak without the geek.” Twice the winner of the Georges Duboeuf Best Wine Book of the Year Award, his books—Oldman’s Guide to Outsmarting Wine (Penguin) and Oldman’s Brave New World of Wine (Norton)—have been called the “perfect book” by the Wall Street Journal and the “perfect primer” by The New Yorker. Oldman’s sold-out appearances at the country’s top gastronomic festivals are considered must-see events in the world of food and wine. He has been the wine expert for Pottery Barn, lead judge in the PBS television series “The Winemakers,” and the wine correspondent for the Food Network. Keenly interested in innovating in the areas of education and consumer advocacy, Oldman also founded and ran the career portal Vault.com for a decade until its successful sale to a private equity firm. A licensed attorney and three-time Stanford graduate, he serves or has served on five major boards of the university.
Mr. Oldman has so much information to offer, and this book is like having the opportunity to have a personal conversation and grill him with everything you ever wanted to know. Many of us have seen him at the myriad food festivals he attends, but the problem is when you go see him, he is so inundated by beautiful screaming women (is this guy the fifth Beatle?) that you can’t get anywhere near him to ask questions. Now we have the book so that between this and the opportunities to see him at festivals, you’ll get a lifetime worth of great wine information. Oldman can probably afford drink like a billionaire. I can’t. Thankfully, this book does what it says.
