Great Introduction to wines

This was a great introduction to wines. I am not good with foreign languages and pronunciations and so I have always been intimidated by all the French and Italian names. Not a problem with this audio since everything is spoken. I did have a book that I referred to while listening so I could see the spelling of the words as well which was very helpful. Pronunciation aside, the major topics of wine were made easy to understand and it has definitely increased my confidence in purchasing or discussing wines.

Corked...

This is barely fine for someone who has never ordered a bottle of wine and is about to go on a date and does not want to make a total fool of themselves. For this purpose, this is an acceptable listen. Other than that, it is mostly worthless.
