Becoming a happier, more confident wine drinker is easy. The first step is to not worry about some of the needlessly complicated stuff the “experts” have been telling you.

From lessons on drinking and buying, to storing and sharing, The New Wine Rules by Jon Bonné guides you through the world of wine with concise and accessible hacks from one of the world’s leading wine writers.

Learn why you should smell the cork, and how it really does tell you something, and why a wine’s price rarely reflects its quality.

Jon will teach you how to get the best bottle for your buck and impress friends with little-known facts on serving and ordering wine in restaurants, as well as how to pair perfectly with food.

This beautifully illustrated book is the ultimate gift for all wine lovers.
