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?


“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

“Rejoice! At last, an accessible, abbreviated guide to the basics of wine, including drinking, buying and sharing.” – Wine Enthusiast

“… a primer on all things wine that is clear, concise, and firmly anti-snob.” – Departures
