Why is wine so difficult? It might be because we in the industry have long used ridiculous tasting notes to describe wine, even though these descriptions fail to encapsulate all that a wine offers. “Notes of blackberries, tobacco, and leather.” How does this odd list of a few flavors help you decide if you will like a wine?
“Wine Hack” offers a new way forward. Learn wine like we in the industry learn wine. Spoiler: lots of tasting! This interactive book asks you to taste along with everyday food, drinks, and widely available wines to learn the four attributes that describe all wines, and even learn a few tricks for pairing wine with food.
This is the first book on wine that starts with your mouth, not your head. Teach your mouth wine and you will learn to find wines you love on a regular basis, no matter how snooty that wine shop guy is.
“Wine Hack” is the first interactive book on wine education that starts with your mouth, not your head.

I really enjoyed this book and found the author’s ability to write about wine in a clear and efficient style very helpful. This is not a book for the wine expert who wants to discuss the differences between German riesling and Austrian riesling for 300 pages. This is the book for someone who is intimidated by wine, wine lists and wine snobs. The book focuses on getting to know wines by tasting wines, rather than by studying facts about varietals, methods, regions, etc. It does away with much that can make other wine books laborious. My hope is that the author will write a follow-up which will take the next step in educating a layperson about wine. Note: This is a short book and can be read quickly and easily. If you want to know everything there is to know about wine. you might prefer the The Wine Bible at a svelte 1008 pages. 🙂
Met Jeffrey at a wine expo. Very knowledgable, fun read, and informative. Love it…
