"Four Stars! The Wine Explorer by Graham Mitchell is a wonderful book for anyone learning about wines and wine tasting. He tells just how to experience a wine and how to talk about wines intelligently. But more than that Mitchell tells stories that he has gleaned from wineries and wine connoisseurs around the world, and these stories are gems. Of course, wine makes one more comfortable in talking and sharing experiences with friends and even with strangers. These are interesting tales, all thanks to and about the wines and the countries he visits. A very readable and informative book."--Bonnie Neely "Real Travel Adventures "
