The New Wine Rules: A Genuinely Helpful Guide to Everything You Need to Know

In The New Wine Rules, acclaimed wine writer Jon Bonné explains everything you need to know in simple, beautifully illustrated, easy-to-digest tidbits. Bonné takes the unorthodox approach of teaching you to forget all the useless, needlessly complicated stuff the “experts” have been telling you. For example: A wine’s price rarely reflects its quality; you can drink Rosé any time of year; and don’t save a great bottle for anything more than a rainy day.

There are few greater pleasures in life than enjoying a wonderful glass of wine.  So why stress about it?
