StiIl drinking Cabernet after that one bottle you liked five years ago? It can be intimidating to branch out from your go-to grape, but everyone wants their next wine to be new and exciting. How to choose the right one? Award-winning wine author Alice Feiring argues that while grape variety is important, a lot can be learned about wine by looking at the source: the ground in which it grows.
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 clarifying account of the traditions and techniques of wine tasting, demystifying the practice and introducing a whole new way to enjoy wine to sommeliers and novice drinkers alike.
Alice Feiring is a James Beard Award—winning wine writer, author of The Battle for Wine and Love, and creator of the wine blog Veritas in Vino. She is the wine editor for 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 top wine pros. From Anjou, France, she champions its Chenin. It is her deep belief that the word terroir is not to betaken in vain.
