The New Wine Rules – Jon Bonne
The New Wine Rules – A Genuinely Helpful Guide to Everything You Need to Know.
There are few greater pleasures in life than enjoying a wonderful glass of wine. So why does finding and choosing one you like seem so stressful?
Now, becoming a happier, more confident wine drinker is easy. The first step is to forget all the useless, needlessly complicated stuff the “experts” have been telling you. In The New Wine Rules, acclaimed wine writer Jon Bonné explains everything you need to know in simple, beautifully illustrated, easy-to-digest tidbits. And the news is good! For example: A wine’s price rarely reflects its quality. You can drink rosé any time of year. Don’t save a great bottle for anything more than a rainy day.
“I’m generally not one to follow the rules, but in the case of this book, I will absolutely make an exception! Fun, informative and easy to read, Jon has done a masterful job making ‘lovers of the grape’ feel completely comfortable in the world of wine.” — Kyle MacLachlan, actor and winemaker
” … a Zen-like reminder that wine is a joy, not a chore; a journey, not a race. Beginners and even confident wine drinkers will find much of value, even leafing through rules at random.”
– Eric Asimov, New York Times
“With its simple and friendly advice on buying, storing and drinking wine, it’ll make you a happier and more confident wine nerd.”
– The Daily Beast
“… a primer on all things wine that is clear, concise, and firmly anti-snob.”
Praise for The New California Wine:
“The New California Wine delivers some of the most insightful wine writing you’ll read anywhere. This is the real skinny on cutting-edge California wine from somebody who’s on the ground, knows his stuff, and couldn’t care less about offending the Establishment.” –Matt Kramer, author and columnist for Wine Spectator
“Jon Bonné brings a clear-eyed perspective to California; this book offers a fresh look at a mature wine culture heading in surprising directions. Its new leaders are all here; its old scams get some brusque treatment, too. Essential, pithy, easy reading.” –Hugh Johnson, author of The World Atlas of Wine
