Book Review: Wine Politics: How Governments, Environmentalists, Mobsters, and Critics Influence the Wines We Drink

This book is a great read and definitely recommended to any wine  aficionados. In the preface, Tyler mentions that if you are looking to resolve your personal conflicts between the Red / White wine or find your political orientation, then this book is NOT for you.  To an extend I agree but then again I encourage all wine lovers of all kinds to go pick a copy of this book.

To be honest, my opinion might be a bit biased as I have had the  pleasure to take a Wine course with him at NYU and had been looking forward to this book for a bit now. It was great fun to be part of  Tyler's class as he took us on wonderful journey of Wine Culture and Tasting. His ability to take a very intimidating topic of Wine and make it very easy for amateurs is amazing. He does the same in this book as his passion and knowledge of the subject is palpable.

Kudos to Dr. Vino on this book. To many more years of exploration of  wine world. Salut !!!
