Did you know that wines can smell like everything from sausage to butter to cat pee? The book lets you smell bacon, butter, and grass just to compare. It also explains in what types of wines you would detect those scents.
The tagline of the book is “Wine is a grocery, not a luxury” and Betts explains that his goal is just to help people better enjoy their wine - whether they “pour it out of a pitcher, pull it out of a box, drink it out of a tumbler.” That’s my kind of wine drinking!
The education part of the book starts with some basic background about how smell affects your taste. Then he starts to break down different groups such as fruit, wood, and earth. As you smell your way through the book, you can compare different scents to figure out which you like best. At the end, there is a big foldout chart where you can match up the scents you liked to figure out which wines you would enjoy best.
Humorously illustrated, with 16 scents, this irresistible gift puts the fun back in wine fundamentals.
