"Good Better Best Wines"Over the holidays I received several books to read with the hopes that they would all make it to the Worth Reading Channel of WE Magazine for Women.  But I have a confession to make. I have not had time to read most of them.  In fact, the only one I have had time to read is Good, Better, Best Wines by Carolyn Evans Hammond

So today I thought it high-time I let our readers know about this book!

Good, Better, Best Wines: A No-Nonsense Guide to Popular Wines- This book ranks wines by variety and price up to $15.  The author, sommelier Carolyn Evans Hammond provides tasting notes as well as bottle images to help readers find the wines on the shelves. Its accessible style and useful content—including a chapter on Good Deals at Super-Low Prices—cut the intimidation factor often associated with wine. In fact the book is only $7.95 on Amazon.

Inside you’ll find:

*The good, better, and best big-name wines under $5, $8, $11, and $15 for each major grape variety

* Perfect party wines for specific occassions–weddings, dinners, backyard barbecues and more

* Trade secrets for getting the most out of each wine, including storage tips, serving techniques, and food pairings

Seasoned journalist and qualified sommelier Carolyn Evans Hammond makes wine accessible with her witty and light approach to the subject.  Her first book, 1000 Best Wine Secrets, earned critical acclaim,a nd her writing has appeared in such eminent publications as Decanter, Wine & Spirit International, The Times in London, and others. If you would like to impress your friends with your new-found knowledge on wine, this is the book to get.

Who knows, it could encourage you to take a course to become a Sommelier!
