Product description

Wine consumption in the UK and elsewhere in the world is soaring. We are now drinking 60 per cent more wine than we were ten years ago. A recent market study revealed that "there is an emergence of two important groups of new wine drinkers: women and young people". This guide addresses both groups, reaching out to new, young wine drinkers who are a world away from the traditional, usually male, wine buff.;Kitty Johnson looks at why men are always offered the wine list and advises women on wine selection. She considers her subject in the way the majority of women think about it: by styles suitable for different situations or occasions, and in a language that women speak and understand, putting wine terminology firmly in its place. "Which wines are good with cheese or Indian or oriental food?", "Are deposits in the bottom of a bottle safe?", "What's a good bag-in-box wine for a drinks party?", "What kind of high quality wine would be suitable to give as a present?", "Does drinking wine make a difference to my weight?", "I'm four months pregnant; can I have the odd glass of wine?" These are just a handful of questions that are answered in Kitty's modern, unpretentious yet informative guide aimed at young women everywhere.
