A Wonderful Wine Book – Wine Folly Magnum Edition

If you want to learn more about wine, or if you’re trying to find the perfect birthday or holiday gift for a wine-loving friend or family member, look no further; this was just released today – Wine Folly Magnum Edition, The Master Guide by Madeline Puckette.

We met Madeline (aka @winefolly on social channels) at wine events over the years. She is a sommelier in addition to being a wine writer and visual designer. So we are not surprised to find this magnificent book is chock full of easy-to-read information and illustrations to help you navigate the wine world.

If you have ever felt overwhelmed by the abundant choices available in a wine store or in the wine aisle, this book is for you. If you’ve ever felt intimidated by other people’s knowledge of wine and wanted to know more, this book is for you. Or if you simply love to read about wine, get your copy today.

With infographics, wine maps and excellent content, Wine Folly Magnum Edition is a guide to everything wine:

  • Smelling wine
  • Tasting wine
  • Handling, serving and storing wine
  • Assessing wine quality
  • Discovering new wines
  • Making great food and wine pairings
  • Learning more about the grapes
  • Unearthing different wine regions around the world

You can also read about wine etiquette, wine glasses, wine cellars, wine-making techniques, acidity, tannins, wine aromas and wine faults such as cork taint, brettanomyces and oxidation.

Whether you want a deep dive into these subjects or just quickly find an answer to a wine question, Wine Folly Magnum Edition has you covered.

In the name of transparency, we received a free copy from Avery Books/Penguin Random House. After just a quick glance, we were hooked, and this guide is now on display in our wine room for our friends and family to enjoy too.
