What they said about Wine Folly…
I really love this book! You don’t need to know anything about wine to understand this book.”Heidi Cowan
Madeline’s respectful but unfussy approach cuts through the mystique and makes wine approachable. I think she’s increased our enjoyment of the wine tasting and buying experience about 200% just from information and advice in the book and on the wonderful Wine Folly website.”S. Sloan
Wine Folly is a game changer. As a visual learner, the way this book is written and illustrated, makes wine so much easier to learn–and best of all–fun.”Becca
I purchased this for my work, I manage a restaurant that sells a lot of wine. My staff has been using this book to help themselves learn about wine and increase their knowledge to guide our customers to the right wine. Whether you’re a wine snob or amateur this book is fantastic.”McClay
