Terrible Narration

The narrator sounds like he’s chatting in a cave. The material is jumbled and hard to follow.

This is a fun way to learn about wine!

This audiobook won’t stay on my shelf only because it is an audiobook. I will probably order the paperback to keep it handy near our wine rack. It’s an excellent reference for understanding which you’re tasting, terroir/region notes, and how to discuss what you have in the glass. As an engineer, I love this audiobook because it was written to have listened. The content is presented in a much less intimidating or traditional way, without losing the learnings. I just bought the notebook to taste the whiskey. I also purchased the second audiobook by the same author. I saw that he made some Whiskey Tasting Journal that can be used to track and remember everything. I have listened to the audiobook on fino several times. I will do the same with others.

Useful to seduce the most demanding women.

Useful !! This audiobook is an astounding piece of art on Wine Tasting. It is kind of hard to summarize in a couple of sentences, how useful it has been to improve my conversations with women. Yesterday I was on the first date, and I could explain everything about the red wine we had ordered. The words heard from Gary Wines Cappiello's audiobook appeared in my mind and easily flowed out. She was so impressed...I recommend everyone to listen to this audiobook and Whiskey Tasting, the second Audiobook of Gary Wines Cappiello. He rulez!

Dinner with Friends & Wine!

I have been following Gary Wines Cappiello on Twitter for over a year. I went to his estate in Italy and bought some bottles. This audiobook is the definitive guide to Wine Tasting. Today dinners with friends are engaging, fun, and with excellent wines.

GREAT wine book for beginners!

This audiobook has been fantastic for my wife and me as novice wine drinkers that wanted to learn about the different wines and make educated choices when we purchase them.

Great gift for a wine lover.

If you enjoy wine—but can’t articulate why—you’re not alone! I had the same feeling, but this audiobook helped a lot. Fortunately, this is a guide that has all the answers. Energetic resource, in-depth, & fun, I will buy another audiobook by the same author.

The only wine audiobook you will ever need.

You don't know anything about wines, but you have to give one. Listen to this audiobook.
Do you want to make a good impression when you go out with a new partner? Buy this Audiobook.
Do you want to impress colleagues and friends at the first elegant dinner? Listen to this book. The author is Italian-American, he makes some spelling mistakes, but the content is beneficial indeed.

Useful wine information!!

Gary Wines Cappiello is not American and he feels it. Explaining is not perfect, but on wine it is unbeatable. His book is truly a mine of knowledge. I was at a business lunch and I showed off all the knowledge learned from this audio. I was in the center of attention and I felt really good.

Wine has no more secrets!!

It often happens to have business meetings in the restaurant. At these meetings, we have to talk, and I never knew what to say. Thanks to this audiobook, I got an idea about wine tasting, and today I know how to converse amiably on wine. In short, I can entertain my guests, make them feel at ease, inspire them, and make them go home with a lot of new curiosities learned. And all with a tiny audiobook. Thanks Gary!

Rich in information!!

The audiobook has not a perfect style, but it is the bible for all the information the author fits inside. I love it. I was buying his book about Whiskey Tasting, and I saw this one as suggested. The content is very detailed. Great info organized to listen on my mobile device. Now I can taste a glass of wine with brand new eyes.

I honestly thought this was read and written by someone who is handicapped. This really isn’t worth your time.

Google Translate?

this was strange. it read like it was translated by Google. the sound quality is poor, and the reader seems to stumble through it. there are large sections where it just sounds like random words.

Re-translate ...... please

I am sure the author knows their subject but the quality of the translation is poor. I spent my time translating the google English narrative into English, which meant I didn’t follow the insights being provided. Example is the grapes that are used as just fruit (rather than for wine) and called desk grapes.

Great introduction to the world of wine

Not to mention, the Wine Bible, which took the author 10 years to write! Also full of more information than you can shake a stick at. Cork Dork is also a recommended read for those interested in what it takes to become a sommelier and sit for the exam. All these books can be used together for those interested in diving deeper into to the wine world. This is a great way to get your feet wet.

Lovely coffee table book that makes wine approach

It is very attractive and well made and looks great on my wine stand in my living room.authors have a way of teaching new things in a very approachable manner, and the simple, clean illustrations bring the information to life. I am not a wine newbie, but neither am I highly knowledgeable, and I believe this would be an informative, enjoyable book for almost any reader.
