this is the book and author for you.You will walk away from this book with:- An exact profile of your unique palate that you can easily understand.- All of the secret code words to find and order THE BEST WINE FOR YOU.- How to ask for what you want, and the answers to the questions you have always wanted to ask, but didnt.You NEVER have to feel lost, overwhelmed, or bored in front of a wine list EVER again.Wine Snobs Are Boring is a somewhat rebellious, definitely precocious guide to unlearning the myths and misperceptions that may have held you back from experiencing the deepest pleasure, the widest outstretched freedom, and the sweetest sense of thriving that can come from the self-confidence given by the grapevine.This book is for you if you are, like me, allergic to wine snobs.
Whenever one is around, I suffer from consistent and uncontrollable eye-rolling. Snobs think their palates are somehow better than the rest of us mere mortals, which is total bunk. Having served thousands of glasses of wine to people varying from virginal to vertiginously above my level of technical knowledge, I believe fundamentally that every palate is its own filter for an experience. Its totally possible that the best wine in the world wont be exciting to you simply because it doesnt match your palate.Thats where this book will be different.
This book is about you. Over the years Ive perfected the Palate Identity Program that has helped thousands of people learn about their own palate by answering a few non-wine-related questions. You will get a chance to go through this program and determine the identity of your palate.This book is about the tangible tactics of wine.
You will learn what you like, how to get the most out of a tasting experience, and you will learn answers to those questions you sometimes feel foolish for Googling after a run-in with a snobIts also about the deeper truth that you can learn all the wisdom in the world if you can just get past the woulda-coulda-shoulda kind of life.In Europe then we thought of wine as something as healthy and normal as food and also as a great giver of happiness and well-being and delight.Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult- it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary.
