Wine Isn't Just for Dummies

Posted by The Wine Whore |


Should I take this personally?

Mrs. Whore came home the other day with a surprise: my very own copy of "Wine for Dummies". At first I was a little pissed, offended, and even hurt. But then I thought about it. I bet there's some funny crap to be read in this book. Maybe I should give it a chance...

So without further adieu, here's today's dumb wine quote of the day:

"Today's winemakers have a bag of tricks as big as a sumo wrestler's appetite"

Looks like I'm not the only one turning tricks! Aparently it takes a big sac in order to make wine... who knew?

Don't take offense.

I actually am a fan of many of the "Dummies" books. They can reduce many complex issues to more easily understandable items. None of us know everything about wine so we should take knowledge from any and all sources. One never knows what you might learn.

And the "dummies" book can be quite entertaining as well.

Good reading!

That was sweet of her. Reading is always good. Never know what gems you might find.

And I thought growing/harvesting grapes was the most important trait :)

Ok, I won't take this one personally! If nothing else, it's fun to read a different perspective on wine, even if it is "dummied down" :)

Exactly Dan! This book DOES mention that starting with good fruit is fundamental but I think this quote sends some conflicting messages. After all, if the fruit is good, does a winemaker have to be such a magician? I think NOT! :)
