mp3 | Naxos Audiobooks; Unabridged edition (June 17, 2003) | ISBN 9626342900 | 250 MB
In vino veritas, the saying goes. But it may be as valuable to know the veritas of the vino, and Julian Curry makes it easy and entertaining to do just that. From cultivation to curmudgeonly quaffing, his recorded course moves easily along, accompanied by classical music breaks and a helpful booklet. While not everyone may need to know the right way to stomp a grape, it's never a bad idea to know how to deal with a snobby sommelier, store wine properly, and buy the perfect bottle at the perfect price. Never pedantic, A GUIDE TO WINE is a fine gift for yourself or any other wine lover.
Actor and wine buff, Julian Curry, has devised this unique audiobook guide to wine, which takes the listener to the heart of winemaking and wine drinking in a clear but light-hearted manner. However rich and complex the subject of wine may be, he insists it is also hugely rewarding and great fun. Curry's informative and entertaining program begins with a description of work in vineyard and cellar. It outlines the many choices faced-by grape-grower and winemaker, resulting in the variety of different styles of wine produced. It continues with wine's journey from winery to gullet, with advice on cellaring, buying, serving, food-matching and tasting. It then moves on to thumbnail sketches of the grape varieties most commonly used, their natural habitats and related styles of wine. And it continues with a lengthy section devoted to all major wine regions, in the Old World and the New. Written and recorded especially for Naxos AudioBooks, and enhanced by the music of Beethoven, De Falla, Godard, Gershwin, Granados, Mascagni, Offenbach, Paterson, Piazzolla, Rossini, Strauss and Verdi, A Guide to Wine is the perfect gift for wine aficionados and those with just a passing interest in the subject alike!
