Award-winning and critically acclaimed wine blogger Tyler "Dr. Vino" Colman encourages wine enthusiasts to "drink different" in this lively, information guide to a year of wine enjoyment and appreciation.
Food and wine pairings usually grab all the attention, but there's another dimension to enjoying wine that gets overlooked: pairing wine with the mood and the occasion. In this innovative book, Dr. Vino suggests ways to get the most out of what's happening in wine drinkers' lives throughout the year--whether it be a holiday such as Thanksgiving or an event like a graduation--and coordinates that with what's happening in the vineyards, resulting in 365 days of wine enjoyment and enrichment.
Organized by season and broken down by month, A Year of Wine covers everything from the perfect wine to cozy up to the fire with in December to tackling the tricky tast of selecting a wine to take to a Father's Day barbecue. Colman provides recommendations for every season, mood, and budget while offering a comprehensive yet compelling education on the world of wine--including collecting strategies and gift suggestions. Whether readers are looking for advice on the best place to go for a quick wine getaway, or wondering what to pair with salsa and chips on Cinco de Mayo, they'll find the answer in this entertaining, informative guide.
