In Wine Wisdom, certified sommelier Magandeep Singh takes wine off the snob table and puts it in a handy brown bag for all to relish.
With the irrepressible passion he reserves for his favourite beverage, Magan leads you through the simple methods of classifying wine to the intricate process of tasting it (complete with instructions on what to say, when to say it and when to simply raise your eyebrows and keep your lips sealed). He demystifies wine labels and restaurant wine lists, gives practical tips on ordering the perfect wine for a magical evening (together with a phonetic guide to pronouncing the names so you can impress your guests), and advises you on the best way to uncork a bottle without causing any unfortunate spills.

Quirky anecdotes, essential facts and figures and invaluable advice—Wine Wisdom packs in all you need, whether you're a wine lover, or want, simply, to be party-trained.
