The Sommelier's Wineline
"What To Look For In Wine!"
The complete how to taste wine like a Professional Sommelier,
or slang, SOMM!

In both the book and DVD Rick answers these questions and more;
How do I taste wine? What am I looking for? Why? How do I tell how old a wine is?
What are acids? Tannins? What does it mean to be balanced? How can I remember what I taste?
How can I talk about wine with confidence? How can I tell a SOMM what I like?
What's body got to do with it? How do I find all those smells and aromas?
Where do all these components in a wine come from?
What can I do with all I've learned?

In 1978, Rick worked as a sous chef for the Hobbit Restaurant in Orange (California). One of the perks of working there was that they had such an incredible wine cellar and they allowed him the opportunity to learn about wine and wine service. He eventually got to fill in for the owner/Sommelier JB whenever he went on vacation and Rick's love of wine ballooned. In 1982, he and his wife bicycled through nine countries in Europe, with much of it spent in the wine regions getting "hands on" experience. January of 1983 Rick was hired as Sommelier for Alfredo's Restaurant in Orange County's South Coast Plaza Hotel. It was there that he began his wine education programs. By educating the staff and getting them excited about wine, Rick broke all sales records by leaps and bounds. Rick and Diana went on to open a wine school and ran it until they bought their restaurant, The Black Sheep Bistro, in 1989. Today wine has a bigger following than ever, and "What To Look For In Wine" will help you to really know what to look for when tasting wine.

"Giving you the tools to know great wine."

The book gives the greater detail and you can be slow and meticulous. The DVD and online videos give you more of a "live class"
experience and Rick says don't try to watch it without a tasting glass of wine each time you go through it.
Both together work best...
