Product Details


“I’m generally not one to follow the rules, but in the case of this book, I will absolutely make an exception! Fun, informative and easy to read, Jon has done a masterful job making ‘lovers of the grape’ feel completely comfortable in the world of wine.”
– Kyle MacLachlan, actor and winemaker  

” … a Zen-like reminder that wine is a joy, not a chore; a journey, not a race. Beginners and even confident wine drinkers will find much of value, even leafing through rules at random.”
– Eric Asimov, New York Times

“With its simple and friendly advice on buying, storing and drinking wine, it’ll make you a happier and more confident wine nerd.”
– The Daily Beast

“Rejoice! At last, an accessible, abbreviated guide to the basics of wine, including drinking, buying and sharing.”
– Wine Enthusiast

“… a primer on all things wine that is clear, concise, and firmly anti-snob.”
– Departures

“Bonné is one of the best wine writers working today, but he wears his learning lightly in conveying the essentials of buying, storing and ordering the beverage while working in some tips that go beyond the standard beginner’s wine book.”
– TheStreet

“Consider this an artful primer on enjoying wine, from how to choose a bottle to how to serve it, store it, and get the most out of drinking it. Features gorgeous illustrations from María Hergueta, and all of it happily sized to stuff a stocking. Recommended!”
– Sprudge

Praise for The New California Wine:

“The New California Wine delivers some of the most insightful wine writing you’ll read anywhere. This is the real skinny on cutting-edge California wine from somebody who’s on the ground, knows his stuff, and couldn’t care less about offending the Establishment.” –Matt Kramer, author and columnist for Wine Spectator

“Jon Bonné brings a clear-eyed perspective to California; this book offers a fresh look at a mature wine culture heading in surprising directions. Its new leaders are all here; its old scams get some brusque treatment, too. Essential, pithy, easy reading.” –Hugh Johnson, author of The World Atlas of Wine
