Contributed by: NAPSA
(NAPSA) - Wine experts toss around terms like "vieilles vignes" and "bouquet" like you knew what they were talking about - and now you can.
A new book offers a swift and painless way to learn about wine. Loaded with wine expert Mark Oldman's personal recommendations - including the top 100 wines for less than $15 - "Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine" (Penguin, $18) compresses the author's 15 years of experience teaching about and drinking wine into 108 ingenious shortcuts for picking the right wine for any celebration, including Valentine's Day, barbeques, weddings and twenty-one other special occasions.
This fun to read, practical and refreshingly candid wine guide gives sound advice with verve and humor and will help you navigate the world of wine with confidence and style.
The book also includes the wine picks of an eclectic mix of collectors, including Le Cirque 2000 owner Sirio Maccioni, Morley Safer of "60 Minutes" and singer Tori Amos. This is a wine guide like no other and is sure to be savored by anyone who wants their wine without the attitude.
"Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine" is available online.
