<DIV>Announcing the completely revised and updated edition of <I>The Wine Bible</I>, the perennial bestselling wine book praised as <I>“The most informative and entertaining book I’ve ever seen on the subject”</I> (Danny Meyer), <I>“A guide that has all the answers” </I>(Bobby Flay), <I>“Astounding”</I> (Thomas Keller), and <I>“A magnificent masterpiece of wine writing”</I> (Kevin Zraly).<BR /><BR /> Like a lively course from an expert teacher, <I>The Wine Bible</I> grounds the reader deeply in the fundamentals while layering on informative asides, tips, amusing anecdotes, definitions, glossaries, photos (all new for this edition), maps, labels, and recommended bottles. Karen MacNeil’s information comes directly through primary research; for this second edition she has tasted more than 10,000 wines and visited dozens of wine regions around the world. New to the book are wines of China, Japan, Mexico, and Slovenia. And through it all the reader becomes ever more informed—and, because of the author’s unique voice, always entertained: “In great years Pétrus is ravishing, elegant, and rich—Ingrid Bergman in red satin.” Or, describing a Riesling: “A laser beam. A sheet of ice. A great crackling bolt of lightning.”<BR />  </DIV>

<b>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br />ONE OF THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>CRITICS' TOP BOOKS OF 2017<br /><br />Named a Best Book of 2017 by NPR, <i>Fortune,</i> <i>Smithsonian, Bustle, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Booklist, </i>and more<br /><br />“Thrilling . . . [told] with gonzo élan . . . When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the <i>Kitchen Confidential </i>of the wine world, she’s not wrong, though Bill Buford’s <i>Heat </i>is probably a shade closer.” —<b>Jennifer Senior, <i>The New York Times</i></b></b><br /> <br />Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” <br /><br />With boundless curiosity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what’s the big deal about wine? What she learns will change the way you drink wine—and, perhaps, the way you live—forever.<br /><br /><br />“Think: <i>Eat, Pray, Love</i> meets <i>Somm</i>.” —theSkimm<br /><br />“As informative as it is, well, intoxicating.” —<i>Fortune</i>
