When you start learning about wine, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the materials out there.
I know because a few years ago, I was in the same boat. But unlike most wine learners, I had a sneaky advantage of being an ex-teacher. So, I was able to evaluate wine books with different criteria.
After reading dozens of wine books, the best beginner wine book for visual learners is Wine Folly: The Essential Guide to Wine.
Here’s 3 reasons why is might be the perfect first wine book for you:
1. It’s light on text, but it’s heavy on beautiful, engaging visuals.
Most wine books are tomes with names like Wine Encyclopedia, Atlas or Bible. Wine Folly skimps on the words and goes all-in on informative visuals.
They are beautiful frameworks that give you a great context for visually distilling wine knowledge.
2. Madeline Puckette, its creator, is a designer and certified wine expert.
Madeline wasn’t born a wine expert. In fact, she broke into the industry washing glasses. But as she gained knowledge, she quickly saw that beginners wanted to learn more but had nowhere to go.
So, she leveraged her design abilities and growing wine knowledge to create amazing wine infographics, and rest is history!
3. It’s the ultimate reference book to tell you what to expect when tasting wine.
When you start tasting wine and developing your palate, it’s difficult to trust what you’re experiencing.
But with Wine Folly at your side, things get easier.
You can flip to the grape variety you’re sampling to confirm and discover new flavors in your glass.
