Newcomer to wine or wine lover -- there's something for everyone in this collection of tips, trends and trivia from Garr's popular WineLoversPage.com E-letter. Here you'll find answers to the questions people most frequently ask -- plus basic things about wine like: "How many people is a bottle of wine supposed to serve?" "Why do waiters always stick the white wine in an ice bucket, but never the red?" "How come none of the good red wine is sweet?" And, "Why do people who taste wine as a job spit it out?" You'll also learn about wine trends - organic wine, screw caps, wine you can carry home from the restaurant, shipping wine to your home, and more. And the offbeat. Wine and spam? What not to serve with wine? It's all in here.
Über den Autor: WineLoversPage.com founder Robin Garr brings his decades-long background in journalism to wine appreciation and online community-building, working to make wine accessible to a wide range of readers, from beginners to experts and wine professionals. A pioneer in online wine appreciation sites, Robin Garr helped manage the CompuServe Wine Forum for nearly a decade before creating WineLoversPage.com in 1994 as one of the first independent wine-education websites. Today WineLoversPage.com is the largest, most popular and most highly awarded wine destination on the Internet. His Wine Lovers' Discussion Group, the first Web-based interactive wine-appreciation community, started in 1996; and he launched the popular E-mail newsletter, The 30 Second Wine Advisor, at the start of 1999. Garr buys all the wines he reviews on the Wine Lovers' Page at his own expense, rating them both with and without food and presenting the results in simple, straightforward terms without snobbery or "winespeak," adhering to the basic principle, "Straight talk in plain English about fine wine." Robin Garr has been a wine lover since his first visit to the Napa Valley in the 1960s. During the 1980s, he wrote a weekly wine column at The Louisville Times and Courier-Journal; he has written about wine for a wide range of publications, from The New York Times to airline and other special-interest magazines. His show "The Classical Connoisseur" appeared on National Public Radio's Radio Catskill during the 1990s. A lifelong metro journalist, he was a working newspaper reporter for more than 25 years, winning many journalism awards including a share of the Pulitzer Prize at The Louisville Courier-Journal in 1989.
