Baseball cards. Stamps. Barbie dolls. Coins. You name it, and you’ll find a dedicated group of obsessives. Those who love wine are no different — they’ll brag about their collections, trade old and rare bottles, and forever pursue perfection.
Until 2007, I assumed that wine fanatics were crazy. Sure, I enjoyed wine, but it was simply a drink.
And then I put my nose in a glass of Syrah from Failla. Something clicked. And at that moment, I became obsessed. I promptly dove into the world of wine, planning trips, taking classes, attending tastings, and reading every wine publication I could find.
I wish I’d had The Everything Wine Book. The latest edition was officially released today, and it offers a comprehensive introduction to wine. Plus, it was revised and updated by me! So please pick up a copy!
