Excellent book for those who want to entertain and impress friends without breaking the bank. Just about as simple as that. Elyse Luray is one of us, with the same concerns. Her experience on "history Detectives" has served her well. She has good judgement, and has had the good fortune to know the right people to get good information.

I received this on my Kindle about a month ago and fell in love with the idea of trying all of these wines. I am a true wine beginner and this book seems as if it was written just for me ... although I believe even a more experienced wine lover would get so much from it as well. I just ordered an actual copy of the book, as I felt it would be nice to carry it with me and flip through the pages while I'm standing in the wine aisle trying to decide what bottle I want to try next. I have to say I'm blown away by the color photos and wine label pictures in the book ... not only am I looking forward to using this book, I am already making a list of friends to buy a copy for, as it would make a wonderful gift!

I've known very little about wines, the different variety of vintages, which types of foods they would go best with, and so on. Elyse Luray did my DETECTIVE WORK for me and published this book! And I'm SO pleased with it! I've just received it and not only is a wine primer for people like me, the design of each page is extremely pleasing to the eye...aside from the great label information it carries for each of the 200 wines in this book. The page-per-label is uncluttered and carries the essence of the information that I need to make a decision, and sound somewhat knowing in terms of what I'm saying! I hope she keeps updating this concept book!

The book arrived today and I found myself flipping through the pages with anticipation of my next venture to my local wine shop. Surprisingly to my delight, there were several wines I too have tried and enjoyed but the best part of the book is the variety of wines included, the breakdown by regions and the parings. I have already marked various wines from the book to try. I found the use of icons with all the wines an easy at a glance understanding of food pairings for each wine. The book also makes a great gift, just in time for Father's Day!

insightful, if you are a "beginner" into the best wines and what to look fort this will help you a lot to "step up" your understanding of the wine industry.

As a novice, I found this book easy to read and understand. Many of the recommended wines are under $10 which is great on the pocketbook. Red and white wine recommendations are listed separately. Each wine listed has very specific suggestions for food pairings. A very informative and interesting reference!

This was an excellent book on wines. Informative and helpful with an easy to use Kindle format. The discussion also included which wines go best with which foods.
So many wines, so little time!! For a topic that is not simple and with so many wines to choose from, having this easy to read and well organized guide is a great help. I've already tried 3 of Elyse's recommendations and loved them all. Found lots of hidden treasures and it seems this book has something for everyone. I love the food pairing ideas, top 10 lists and special occasion picks. This book has already paid for itself! I highly recommend. Two big thumbs up, cheers!!
