Life's Too Short to Drink Bad Wine: Over 100 Wines for the Discerning Drinker by Jonathan Ray & Simon Hoggart
In this informative and amusing book - updated by Jonathan Ray to include 12 new wines - Simon Hoggart provides a highly personal selection of more than 100 exciting and eclectic wines that are invariably good value. Life's Too Short to Drink Bad Wine is aimed at the amateur wine lover prepared, occasionally, to spend a little more than supermarket prices to get something special. Simon eschews pretentious 'wine-speak' yet describes his encounters with each of them so wittily you will be sure to remember them.The wines are arranged alphabetically with entries interspersed with interesting features varying from how to read a wine label or on how to buy wine, to an account of the Judgment of Paris, when Californian wines beat the French in a blind tasting. From the 112 selected, Simon has awarded ten of them Top 10 status. At the back of the book is a source list of wine makers, distributors and merchants.
