Sniffing the Cork is a user-friendly guide that tells you everything you need to know about ordering, buying, and collecting wines. Written by an adviser to high-end wine collectors, it dispels the long and debatable claim that the subject of wine is the domain of men. The Wine Lady takes you through all the important skills, including how to demystify your local wine shop; everything you need to know about a restaurant wine list; how to buy in quantity for weddings, birthdays, or office parties; how to start a wine cellar; and how to begin investing in wine.
