Awarded the Benjamin Franklin Digital Award Silver Seal of Excellence by IBPA, the Independent Book Publishers Association , in recognition of distinction and innovation in electronic book publishing. "The author knows his subject and it shows. He writes with authority, but in a tone that is friendly and approachable. Thoroughly enjoyed reading his content, learned a lot about the subject, and feel that it provides good value and an interesting read." FINALIST, Indie Reader 2014 Book Awards "Through it all, the author maintains a chatty, cheerful tone that suggests an old friend who genuinely appreciates wine and wants to share that joy with the reader." --Catherine Langrehr for IndieReader "If you like wine but are able to admit that you DO have a lot to learn you could do yourself a lot of good and buy this book. It is not even the price of an average bottle of "everyday wine" in many markets yet it is something that has the capability of changing your future relationship to wine in a very positive way indeed." -- YUM (Darren Ingram Media) Winner in the HOW TO category of the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards; FINALIST, ForeWord Reviews 2014 Book of the Year Awards; Silver Award at 2014 Independent Publisher Book Awards From the Author Having Italian ancestry, maybe it was inevitable that one day I would be immersed in the subject of wine. But it wasn't a typical journey getting here. I was born in an Italian section of Brooklyn, N.Y. and raised in a middle-class, blue-collar New York City "bedroom community" on suburban Long Island. Although a one-gallon jug of red wine was a permanent fixture in the refrigerator, my neighborhood of two-family homes was light years away from the nearest vineyard. After high school, I started college studying to become a music teacher! After one year, I switched gears to study mechanical engineering! Wine was not even a gleam in my eyes. It wasn't until I got close to 40 when I heard a calling to learn about wine and began a combination of self-study with class instruction, moved to California, and soon earned certification in wine knowledge from two national wine education organizations. Having been through the wine-ignorant stage, I understood and cared about one's desire to learn about wine, so my teaching instincts kicked in and I created a weekly wine education column in my local newspaper and started conducting wine appreciation classes in restaurants. In short time, my column, "Wineology: Intelligence For The Wine Consumer," was in several publications, winning me a spot on television as a wine specialist (a "wineologist") on TV's Fine Living Network. Today, I am involved in wine writing, wine making and winery management--I've authored Nose, Legs, Body!, a book specifically for wine beginners while I continue to write my wine column. I am also an oak specialist, consulting to winemakers, and I serve as a general manager for a small, luxury-brand winery in the Central Coast of California. Though I may not have taken a direct route to the world of wine, it feels like I was meant to be here all along. See all Editorial Reviews
