Educating Peter

If you don't know much about wine but are interested in getting informed you should pick up the book: Educating Peter: How Anybody Can Become an (Almost) Instant Wine Expert. Educating Peter follows Lettie's attempt to teach famous Rolling Stone movie reviewer Peter Travers that there's more to wine than just a "fatty Chardonnay". The book discusses everything from the different types of grapes, to each wine region in Bordeaux, to meeting up with some of Napa's top wine producers. Lettie provides the information while Peter provides the wit and humor. The two together make for a very enjoyable story. The best part of the book is that you can take away very useful tidbits of information that are easy to remember that will help you pick out wine next time you go to the store or out to eat. At the end of each chapter, there is a list of the top wine producers of the region you just read about. I enjoyed the book a lot and can't wait to try out my new-found knowledge.
