The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert

A lot of people are surprised to find out I not only don’t like wine but I’ve also never been drunk before. There are a lot of reasons besides the bad taste (in my opinion). However, I have tons of friends and family for whom wine is a passion. Many even go on wine trips.

If you’re looking for a great birthday, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift, then check out Richard Betts’ “The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert.” From Amazon:

“Richard Betts is one of fewer than two hundred master sommeliers in the world, but he’s no wine snob and he hates wine-speak. In the first book of its kind, he helps readers scratch and sniff their way to expertise by introducing the basic components of wine—the fruits, the wood, the earth—enabling anyone to discover the difference between a Syrah and a Sangiovese and get the glass they love every time. Humorously illustrated, with 16 scents, this irresistible gift puts the fun back in wine fundamentals.”

Grab it: “The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert” has a high rating on Amazon and only costs $8.68 so I’m ordering one, as well.
