WHY ITâS A BETTERBOOK
âWine Simplifiedâ is a book made exclusively for the iPad and iPhone, and includes:
âº 90 minutes of video tutorials: Guided video tastings are designed for you to pick up your own wine and follow along at home
âº 240 audio pronunciation guides
âº Dozens of interactive guided tours and slideshows walk you through complex wine labels, winemaking, shopping, and ordering

WHAT THE BOOK WILL DO
âº Learn to identify what you like
So you just tasted a wine you enjoyed. Learn to describe what you liked and how to repeat that experience the next time and every time after that. Make wine shopping a stress-free event.
âº Pick the perfect wine for every dish
Forget memorizing every possible wine-dish combination in the world. Learn the basics of how wine interacts with food (hint: rich, fatty foods go great with high-alcohol wines), and pick the ârightâ wine every time.
âº Decode wine labels and lists
Wine labels and lists may seem like a mess of grapes, obscure place names, and stuffy terminology. Move past that flowery marketing language and learn where to look. Location and alcohol content can tell you a lot!
âº Use rudimentary science and geography to predict wine style
If you can picture how peaches change in flavor as they ripen on the tree, then you can easily grasp the flavor shift found in wines from chilly Northern Italy to sunny California. Conquer a handful of basic concepts and never be stumped again.
