Book Excerpt:

     You have decided it’s time to learn a little about wine.  You don’t want to get carried away, but you
would like to get a handle on why you like some wines yet others are just
yuck.  Maybe you were at a friend’s house and the wine your friend raved
about tasted nasty to you, but the recommendation at the restaurant was the
best wine you have ever tasted.  Perhaps that guy or gal in your life
enjoys wine and you want to know some basics at least.  You have come to
the right place my friend.
     This book is your hack for
wine, your quick start guide that provides a foundation and will give you ways
to discover and enjoy wine your way.  Such as, throwing your own wine tasting
so you can experiment with wine and have a good idea of what you are actually
doing.  No need for a hefty book that you won’t read but may end up as a
doorstop.  Wine can be fun and interesting, and I’ll prove it.
In this guide you will be provided with the critical basics to jump-start your
wine education and do your own wine tasting for yourself or with friends and
     We will follow two imaginary
people in this guide, Michael and Jessica.  We will help both of them
meet their wine education goals and learn alongside them in the process.
     Michael is
your average guy who never thought much of wine; it doesn’t go with football or
baseball.  But Michael is seriously dating and his gal likes wine, her
parents even collect wine. 
     Michael wants to make a good
impression on his potential in-laws, so he is looking to get a quick wine
education before the big dinner where he meets them.  He isn’t planning on
impressing anybody, but he wants to share in the wine experience and converse
with some knowledge. We will give Michael the foundation he needs to skate
through the important dinner and even be able to share a little about what he
likes using the language of wine.

Jessica is single and building her career.  It’s time to leave
college keg parties and jungle juice behind and prepare for the client
entertaining and high-powered social mixers she will be expected to partake in.
     She needs to understand what
she likes, and navigate the champagne luncheons and wine socials without blinking
an eye.  We will get her on her feet and help her find her own wine style
and taste.
As always,
drink responsibly and don’t drink and drive.

About the Author

Ms. Heart is a wine enthusiast on her personal wine journey who found most books on
wine either too textbook, too long, or packed with information she didn’t need
or want to know. Eventually, she was collecting the information that she found
pertinent to enjoying wine without a degree in viticulture. She thought others
might like to have the short cut to the core material as well. Thus was born
the idea for The Little Wine Guide. So, join her on this wine discovery journey!

  1. Mary Preston says:

    I do enjoy a drop of wine.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Me too. Especially while reading a book out by the poo. Have to be careful though. LOL

  2. robeader says:

    I’m as green as grass about wine. Any book concerning this topic should be an interesting read.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I know some, but it’s just a drop. LOL I would love to learn more. Sure would help when I’m standing in the store, staring at all the wines.

  3. Yvonne says:

    This sounds good. I always enjoy a glass of wine :)

  4. Not a drinker, but I am sure that would be interesting to those that are. :)

  5. diannekc says:

    I would like to know more about wine. I like wine and drink what I like, but would like to know what goes what, etc.

  6. Ariel Heart says:

    Thank you for your interest.  I enjoy wine and wanted to share that excitement.  I know many wine books are difficult and wanted to give my down-to-earth approach.  I think there is something for everybody in this little guide.  :-)


    • fuonlyknew says:

      A down to earth approach is just what I need. I have several books and they just don’t quite give me what I need. This would be a wonderful help for me:) Happy to share it!

  7. jennifer@badbirdreads says:

    Thanks for sharing the excerpt.

  8. It’s so refreshing to find an author/wine enthusiast who is willing to write a book that is user friendly. It’s so frustrating to try to grasp all the nuances of wine when the reading is less than engrossing (or written for those with extensive wine knowledge).
