I loved the book it gave me a lot to think about. It stresses personal taste over anything else and don't let things like advertising and price get in the way of that. Enjoy what you like and don't be sorry if no one else does. The process of the trials are very interesting and I wish I had gone to one of the tastings. The list itself provided is helpful because it gives you an idea of places to start if you've never tried wines and also gives you a few ideas to try. They also point out again personal taste will dictate if you like those wines. I have already tried wines made by the companies that are on the list and loved them.

Very clever -- and worth the purchase price if you are a wine drinker! ( )

I'm new to the world of wine and as I started trying to learn about wine, I couldn't help but feel that there was a built in bias for expensive wines, but I queried whether that bias had anything to do with taste. The Wine Trials helped to answer that question. It is a fascinating, though short read. I would have preferred for the writers to give more information about the expensive wines used in their tests. Nevertheless, the results are interesting, the writing is engaging, and the later section of the book, consisting of the inexpensive wines that were highly rated, has given me a whole range of wines to try.

This is a tasty read. If you love wine, but the cash flow is low then this is the book for you. If you need a guild that will help you discover new wine, or old, or if you want some new ideas for dinner. This book will help.
