The updated edition of the classic introduction to wine for everyone, by Master Sommelier Andea Immer Robinson.

Great Wine Made Simple established Andrea Immer Robinson as America’s favorite wine writer. Avoiding the traditional and confusingly vague wine language of “bouquet” and “nose,” it instead discussed wine in commonsense terms.

Now, thoroughly revised, this edition lives up to its title by making selecting and enjoying wine truly straightforward. You will never again have to fear pricey bottles that don’t deliver, snobby wine waiters, foreign terminology, or encyclopedic restaurant wine lists. You’ll be able to buy or order wine with confidence—and get just the wine you want—by learning the “Big Six” basic styles (which comprise 80 percent of today’s top-selling wines), how they taste, how to read any wine label, and how to pick a wine off a restaurant menu. Ten new flavor maps show what to expect from climates around the world.

A refreshing blend of in-depth knowledge and accessibility, Great Wine Made Simple is a welcome resource for those who are intrigued by wine but don’t know where to start and makes it easy to master the ins and outs of choosing a wine that you and your guests will love—on any budget.


  • Not the best bet on the iPad!

    This by far is the best wine books on the market! Does not matter if you are a newbie or a veteran her " not by the book" way of teaching wine tasting and buying is beneficial to everyone. This book goes over reading wine labels, I have the iPad 2 and I have to refer to my paper copy for most labels because the resolution is too low to make out the characters on the label. Just download the free sample and turn to chapter 2 and you will see no matter how big you zoom in it is really difficult to read, if at all possible. Reading and understanding the labels is one of the main disciplines in this great wine books. Cheers and enjoy!
