Wine Folly
Madeline Puckett and Justin Hammack
(UK: Michael Joseph, @MichaelJBooks, 2015; USA: Avery, @Avery_Books, 2015)

Red or white? Cabernet or Merlot? Medium or full-bodied? Drinking great wine isn’t hard, but finding a great wine is much easier when you understand the fundamentals.

Using visual infographics, charts and maps, the expert founders of Winefolly.com have created the ultimate wine resource packed with facts and information.

From tips on which glasses to use, and easy-to-grasp flavour wheels for each wine type, to simple tasting and food-pairing notes, Wine Folly is a fascinating modern and colourful guide.

This accessible book will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to enjoy great wines.
