Richard Betts is one of fewer than two hundred master sommeliers in the world, but he’s no wine snob and he hates wine-speak. In the first book of its kind, he helps readers scratch and sniff their way to expertise by introducing the basic components of wine—the fruits, the wood, the earth—enabling anyone to discover the difference between a Syrah and a Sangiovese and get the glass they love every time. Humorously illustrated, with 16 scents, this irresistible gift puts the fun back in wine fundamentals.

RICHARD BETTS has been featured in theNew York Times,Wine Spectator, Food & Wine, Outside, GQ, andDetails, and speaks frequently on wine throughout the country. He is the founder of two wine companies, Betts & Scholl and Scarpetta, which have won top praise from leading wine publications. The founder and president of Sombra Mezcal, he also launched several new wines in 2012, including Saint Glinglin, My Essential Red, and My Essential Rose.

"Smart, fun, enlightening, and refreshingly free of snobbery."
