Praise for WineWise"In WineWise, Steven Kolpan, Brian Smith, and Michael Weiss have written a book for wine-loving consumers who have no ambitions to become sommeliers, collectors, or connoisseurs, but who nonetheless want to know what wine to look for (including how to read the label), how to enjoy it, where to find it, and when. The tone here is casual, quirky, even amusing, but not a word or sentence is extraneous, no detail is unnecessary. Enjoy the conversations in this book, go forth, and be vintage-challenged no more." -Jerry Novesky, Editor, The Valley Table"WineWise contains, in an amazingly comprehensive, easy-to-read, and concise fashion, practically everything that I took my entire professional career to learn. Reading it will make wine more engaging for anyone who ever orders a glass of wine in a restaurant, but also will build confidence in the seasoned professionals who, sell, buy, and serve that wine." -Rajat Parr, Wine Director, Mina Group"Nothing pretentious here. WineWise is fun, friendly, and packed with information on wines of the world, particularly ones that won't break the bank." -Tara Q. Thomas, Senior Editor, Wine & Spirits"An authoritative and easy-sipping primer on the world of wine." -Bryan Miller, former restaurant critic for the new york timesKolpan, Steven is the author of 'Wine Wise', published 2008 under ISBN 9780471770640 and ISBN 0471770647.
