Marissa A. Ross narrates this casual manual for confident wine drinking with the assurance of a stand-up comedian and the knowledge of a true devotee. Ross, wine writer for BON APPETIT magazine, puts her previous career as a comedy writer to good use in her irreverent audiobook on all things wine. As narrator, Ross has great timing, a potty mouth, and a sincere love for rosés, Gamays, and Vinho Verdes. While aficionados will have to forgive her mispronunciations of "terroir," "Nebbiolo," and "Gruner Veltliner," she is unfazed by the pretensions of typical wine writing and provides lots of laughs and barrels of information to the listener. Suggestions for wine drinking, entertaining, and lifestyle are blended with a basic guide to grape-growing regions, varietals, and the proper tasting of wine.
