Wine expert Christine Ansbacher has some enviable clients: they include corporate icons such as American Express, Merrill Lynch, Pfizer, and Wachovia as well as cultural giants like The New York Philharmonic. Why? Because she’s fun and passionate about wine…and eager to share extensive knowledge so that ordinary wine drinkers (not just elite oenophiles) can get more pleasure from their glass. Here she reveals her smart secrets that everyone who loves wine ought to know—including how to make a $10 Cabernet taste like a $30 bottle; how to determine a fair price for a bottle of wine at a restaurant; and how to avoid the dreaded “red wine headache.” She also answers some common questions, including “What wine do you recommend with Chinese food?” Buying wine, storing wine, going on a “wine vacation”, reading the label, ordering in restaurants: all that, and more, is covered in language as sparkling as fine champagne. This Diva is a delight!
