      Alpana Pours is not like any wine book you re likely to see on the shelves of your local bookstore Instead of overwhelming you with arcane facts and vintages, Alpana Singh TV hostess of Chicago s Check Please restaurant review show on PBS has written a lifestyle book centered on the subject of feeling comfortable around wine It seems that for most people, wine can be a little intimidating Most of us go to a nice restaurant, get handed a wine list, and then proceed to squirm in our seats, unsure [...]

      Fun, fast read It would have been on the nose applicable to me stage 24, but as I ve shockingly matured a bit since then, I was proud to think to myself, oh, well of course, I totally know that when Alpana described some of the finer points of selecting the right reds and wines based on occasion and taste For example, I m proudly past my just run to the grocery store and grab the yellow tail Shiraz for ladies BYOB night and I know enough about what I personally like to make educated decisions at [...]

    3. Melissa says:

      This is a good little wine book I like Alpana on Check please As I somehow know about wine than pretty much all my friends and family, they usually defer to me to choose in restaurants and the like What I like most about this book is that it will help those who aren t comfortable selecting wine to see that drinking wine is like enjoying art nobady can tell you how to do it You like what you like, and everyone experiences each glass differently This is a good way for the wine shy and champagne m [...]

      So I was really excited to read this book about wine written by the cool host of Check Please She is a Master Sommelier and I was really curious about how she came into the field, etc I was also interested in her advice on wine Unfortunately, the biographical piece was far too brief for my tastes The wine advice is the most solid and handy part of the book The whole thing is set up in very brief sections and it lends itself to reading bit by bitwhile commuting, for example However, I found the w [...]

    5. Kim says:

      A lot of information if you are interested in wines If you are a true beginner, as I am, it may be a little overwhelming I m not really very familiar with different types of wines, I tend to stick to a few But, I think the author is easy to read, the format is understandable, and there is lots of good info The primary point that I took away is that even though I am a novice when it comes to wines, I can still make informed decisions about wines to choose for parties and dinners to coordinate wit [...]

    6. Tgaylord says:

      My rating has to do with 2 things that aren t the fault of the author that I m not a woman, to which gender this book is geared and I have a pretty extensive knowledge of wine, such that a lot of the information was not new to me I do, however, love Alpana, so I bought it an autographed copy and read it anyway.

    7. Shannon says:

      An accessible, practical guide to wine, with great tips One of my favorite features is an easy to remember chart for pairing food and wine e.g when you think chardonnay, think butter, and pair it with any food that you d put butter on I also like her party pointers Need a bottle of something that goes with everyone s entrees at your table Get a champagne or a sparkler.

    8. kasia says:

      Not as fun or as funny as it wants to be, but informative and useful nonetheless I learned a bit, and the overall insistent message about feeling comfortable and confident with wine made an impact The relationship life advice was less annoying than I expected it to be, but every bit as uncompelling Still, it s a quick, easy read, and I m glad I did it.

    9. maria says:

      220 pages of cloying cosmo girl talk, set in a big font with swirly graphics, with about ten pages of simple wine facts interspersed yet, those ten pages were news to me, earning this trashy read a second star.

    10. Claudia says:

      This is a great beginner book about wine It removes a lot of the intimidation and let s you relate to the wine using familiar terms and examples Alpana does a decent job keeping you entertained and wanting to learn .

    11. Laura says:

      This is a cute little book about wine I did get a better understanding of the different types of wine and now feel a bit confident in trying wine It s not a deep book, nor does it challenge your mind, but it s an easy book to start with on your wine journey.

    12. Holly says:

      Since Alpana is a chicago television personality hosting, Check Please, i had to read this book Alpana offers great wine advice for any level of wine drinker She writes with a great sense of humor and her pairings are interesting.

    13. Jenny says:

      Great book the author is humble and relatable, which is especially refreshing for a book about wine Cheesy metaphors and excerpts relating wine and relationships, but tongue in cheek style Most importantly, I learned a lot about wine
