Welcome to Wine

An Illustrated Guide to All You Really Need to Know

By Madelyne Meyer

The world of wine is more welcoming than ever in this short but comprehensive guide!

Calling all wine newbies and wine nerds: This illustrated guide is refreshing as a rosé and flavorful as a merlot. As Madelyne Meyer would be the first to tell you, you don’t need a book to enjoy wine . . . but knowing more about your favorite glassful can be a pleasure all its own. In Welcome to Wine, Meyer pairs her expert knowledge with 200 witty, whimsical illustrations that make all the essentials crystal clear—so you can get to the good part sooner!
  • Food pairings and the art of wine tasting
  • Serving temperature (without getting hung up on precision!)
  • Key wine regions and exactly how wine is made
From choosing wine for a date night to training your nose to pick up “notes,” this is the friendliest guide to wine.
