"Billed as 'practical audio for people on the go,' Freeway Guides' latest release, Wine Appreciation, is a lighthearted tutorial on the basics of wine. Briskly covering a wealth of material-from the origins of wine to its different types-this guide mirrors a cultural trend towards wine appreciation. Host Robin Stark, a well-known wine expert, gives a genuinely warm and funny treatment without any of the condescending air wine snobs are known for, although she employs a genuine snob-in the character of the pompous Charles-along with a host of narrative foils, to lend expertise and levity. Stark's delivery is flippant but never condescending. She's just the kind of person you'd like to sit down and have a glass of wine with." (AudioFile)
I would get rid of the different characters the audible has going on. It makes the book seem cheap and cheesy.
There was some good basic information about wine that was helpful
"Fun starter for beginners"
I've just recently started out in the wine world and was delighted to stumble on this audio book. Robin does a great job paring down to the most important basics, and the other characters included make the listening experience more fun. There is plenty of sound advice with helpful tips and where to go for more information. Reasonably priced, I highly recommend it.
