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.
