The Essential Scratch and Sniff Guide to Becoming a Wine Expert

"Wine is a grocery, not a luxury."

Into wine but want to take your knowledge to the next level? There's no better recourse than this genius, cleverly written book guide with full-blown scratch and sniff elements.

Here's the official description: 

Richard Betts is one of fewer than two hundred master sommeliers in the world, but he’s no wine snob and he hates wine-speak. In the first book of its kind, he helps readers scratch and sniff their way to expertise by introducing the basic components of wine—the fruits, the wood, the earth—enabling anyone to discover the difference between a Syrah and a Sangiovese and get the glass they love every time. Humorously illustrated, with 16 scents, this irresistible gift puts the fun back in wine fundamentals.

You won't regret getting this in your life. Impactful and filled with knowledge, it's hard to find a better way to spend just $14.
