Publisher's Summary

Learn to understand and enjoy the world’s standout wine-grape varietals with Master of Wine Rob Geddes. 

An educator, reviewer, judge, frequent guest expert, and the brains behind the mobile app Australian Wine Vintages, Geddes has been a forerunner in the democratization of the wine industry.    

In this 12-part audio course, Geddes shares some tricks of the trade with the casual wine-drinker.  

Taking cues from Geddes’s expertise, you will consider the chemistry behind the creation of flavor - the nuances of which he subdivides into the balance, length, intensity, and complexity of flavor.  

Throughout the program, Geddes recommends wines for you to sample; the effect is of touring wine country, minus the costs of travel and lodging. This is Geddes’s critical maneuver: sounding the death of elitism by praising bottles under $20 with the same enthusiasm as bottles over $150. Specific topics of discussion include: 

  • Cabernet Sauvignon (from Chile and Anderson Valley, California)
  • Champagne and Sparkling Wines
  • Chardonnay (from the Napa Valley and Australia)
  • Merlot (from Italy and California)
  • Pinot Grigio (from Italy and Oregon) and 
  • Port and Madeira

Whether you aim to assemble your own amateur collection or aspire to become more knowledgeable about pairings, Geddes’s program is right up your alley.
