This is Not a Wine Guide by Chris Morrison [©Murdoch Books]


Your wine decisions are best driven by your own sense of taste and by the way you eat, drink and live. This is what award-winning sommelier Chris Morrison believes and he's out to prove it you with his new book offering a new approach to making wine choices.

Like to take the challenge on? Enter below and you could win one of three copies of This is Not a Wine Guide, just released on the 1st August!

It's a wine book for people who also love food (most of us here!) and will help you gain confidence in your wine purchases and not have to rely on the old school notes, scores, reviews and jargon.

Instead of your eyes glazing over a the sight of all those wines at the bottleshop or the winelist selection, you'll know where to start. You'll soon be selecting and buying, serving and sharing and perhaps even collecting wine! And most of all, enjoying the process.

Starting with the fundamentals This Is Not A Wine Guide soon moves from the bottle forwards into the reasons you choose it, open it and drink it; with what company, under what circumstances, in what glasses - and, importantly with what food.

 For Morrison, food, with its taste and textures are what can unlock wine As he says, "wine doesn't make sense without food".

This Is Not A Wine Guide is your pocket sommelier, at your side so you get the most out of your wine experience whether it's entertaining friends around a barbeque or fine-dining, deliberating the wine to match kimchi or panicking about the cork that seems to be crumbling into your favourite sparkling wine.

A refreshing new approach to understanding wine, and food, by an author and expert on both.

Three copies are up for grabs but you have to enter below to be in the draw!
