An entertaining and informative introduction to wine Julian Curry, actor and wine buff, has devised this unique audiobook guide to wine which takes the listener to the heart of wine-making and wine drinking in a clear but light-hearted manner. However rich and complex the subject of wine may be, he insists it is also hugely rewarding and great fun…Curry’s informative and entertaining programme begins with a description of work in vineyard and cellar. It outlines the many choices faced by grape-grower and wine-maker, resulting in the variety of different styles of wine produced. It continues with wine’s journey from winery to gullet, with advice on cellaring, buying, serving, food-matching and tasting. It then moves on to thumbnail sketches of the grape varieties

Review By Audiobooks Today,July 2011

Julian Curry takes a light approach to what might be a stuffy subject. A GUIDE TO WINE has enough information contained on the four CDs to keep the most assiduous wine snob entertained, yet it is geared for the novice who wishes to understand how to judge and buy wine, along with all the requisite terminology needed. From understanding a wine label to learning what to ask for in restaurants when ordering fish or beef, it’s all here. It’s also an overview of the regions where the best wines are made, and how they are produced. Wine is one of the few pleasures anyone of sophistication can acquire, and in our culture of over-consumption and obesity, sipping and savoring is a welcome indulgence preferable to gulping and slurping.
