「葡萄酒很好玩。它複雜、活生生又充滿意義。葡萄酒值得成為你生活的一部分,這本書也是!」

——傑夫.克鲁特(Geoff Kruth)(侍酒大師、葡萄酒網站guildsomm.com總裁)


「在這資訊爆炸時代裡,一本如魔法般生動的葡萄酒指南——如同用香檳刀斬斷一切葡萄酒的複雜。」

「數年來最棒的葡萄酒入門書。換句話說,這本書太棒了!」

——《華盛頓郵報》(The Washington Post)


「葡萄酒資訊極易取得的今天,消化繁瑣資料以視覺化呈現,可說是Winefolly最成功的地方。絕大部分讀者想要知道的,或者從業人員需要謹記的,在本書中都可『即視即得』,葡萄酒知識因此也走向親和,更為具象。」

「滑手機世代的完美葡萄酒懶人包。更完美的是,這是紙本的實體書。」

——林裕森(葡萄酒專欄作家)


「『把複雜變簡單』一直是處事的至高法則,看似被簡化的外表同時包含深刻體悟與通盤了解的底蘊,才能勾勒思維脈絡並去蕪存菁,以如此想,這本Wine Folly其實一點不folly,實為『大智若愚』。本書以清晰易懂的圖解分享葡萄酒知識,內容實用而全面,再也想不出比這更快樂的飲酒良伴了。

——林澧竣Eric(葡萄酒新手選)


「當葡萄酒老師很久了,我的教學投影片的圖片與圖表越來越多,字反而越來越少,一張好圖片可激發大家的想像與共鳴,使得葡萄酒知識不再是品種與產區的堆疊。『一圖解千文』讓你學得快也記得久,本書生動的圖表吸引我們一看再看,輕鬆吸收,值得邊飲邊讀!」

——劉永智(葡萄酒專欄作家)
