Summer Reading: The Wine Club

Lately I've been encouraging my grandfather and his lady friend to start a wine club. I love wine clubs because they are a great way to get friends together while learning about wine. When I first got into wine I tried reading stuffy books full of information on wine varietals, grape types, and climate conditions. These reads were too textbooky, which is why I enjoyed Maureen Christian Petrosky's The Wine Club - a book that's packed with knowledge without all of the stuffiness. Each chapter is labeled by months of the year, with one type of wine for each month. Within each section are fun facts about the wine, bottles at different price points, and tasty recipes. Petrosky writes in a female-friendly, snob-free tone and the text is in purple and green print (like the color of grapes!) instead of the standard black. Get this book and host your first wine club party!

Count me out of the club - I much prefer beer!

I think it'd make a great gift for some of my close relatives, though I really don't like wine personally. No matter how hard I try, I always wrinkle my nose.

This sounds perfect for me. I'd like to try more wine, but I hate the snobbish way some books sound. This one is more me!
