"As appealing to wine-lovers as it is to the simply curious–and to those who like to start their sentences, ‘Ah yes, but did you know . . . ?’–Is This Bottle Corked? answers the really important questions about wine. . . . Best read with a glass of good Pomerol, or perhaps a soft consoling Constantia, this book is as much for those who just enjoy a good glass as it is for committed oenophiles."
—Harpers Wine and Spirit Weekly
"A compilation of amusing and curious stories about wine."
"As fascinating and quirky as the wine it celebrates."
Plenty here that will deepen and enrich even a developed understanding of wine."
—Giles Kime, Times Literary Supplement
"This book is actually fun and tells you things you didn’t know about everything wine-connected. . . . Read it and then instead of being a wine dullard you can be the drinker with the facts."
