Still drinking Cabernet after that bottle you liked five years ago? It can be intimidating to walk away from your grape of choice, but everyone wants their next wine to be new and exciting. How do you choose the right one? Award-winning wine author Alice Feiring says that while the grape variety is important, you can learn a lot about wine by looking at its source: the soil it grows in.
The Dirty Guide to Wine organizes wines not by grape, not by region, not by New or Old World, but by bedrock. Feiring provides a clear account of the traditions and techniques of wine tasting, demystifying the practice and introducing a whole new way of enjoying wine to sommeliers and novice drinkers alike.
Alice Feiring, James Beard Award winner, is the author of The Battle for Wine and Love and the creator of the wine blog Veritas in Vino. She is an editor at the Los Angeles Times and writes frequently for the Wall Street Journal, Saveur, the New York Times and other publications.
Pascaline Lepeltier, MS, is one of the world's leading wine professionals. Originally from Anjou, France, she is the champion of Chenin. She is deeply convinced that the word "terroir" is not an empty word.
