Greetings all! I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on good wine books. I have read a lot of the more general overviews on wine, and I would love to know of some more "advanced" books.
As a side note, I really enjoy reading the tasting notes and other discussions on this board. I am still a law student, so I cannot afford many of the wines, but one day....
Lizbeth, great to see another student on board! First of all, I would get any book (yes, unconditional praise for the author) by Jancis Robinson. She rocks! Also Hugh Johnson's Atlas of Wine is a must and his Pocket Wine Guide (comes out every year) is great. These should get you to a start. These, though overviews, are such great references that I like to always have them at hand. Or did you have a certain area which you would like to get reccos on?
Oh, and if like me you are on a tight budget, get thee to a tasting group (small portions, but for cheap you can taste wines you'd never otherwise be able to taste) and start drinking lots of Loire wines (under appreciated but cracking stuff, ergo cheap!).
Fellow student of something not so financially viable as law, LOL!!
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
