Wine Folly Book Giveaway


If you happened to miss episode 34 of the We Like Drinking podcast, shame on you! With a guest like Madeline Puckette from you really should have tuned in (the episode was even broadcast live on YouTube). On the show, we announced that we’re giving away a copy of the new Wine Folly book. See, you should probably go back and listen to the show.

If you weren’t already aware, Madeline and her partner, Justin Hammack, are releasing their first Wine Folly book, Wine Folly: The Essential Guide to Wine, it drops September 22 of this year. You can find it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Play and more. While Madeline was on the show, we talked a lot about Wine Folly, Madeline herself, and the book. Madeline was kind enough to send me a copy of the book ahead of its release, so I’ve had a chance to look through it, study it for some time, and honestly, it’s a book you’re going to want to pick up.

The book approaches wine simply and elegantly, with the charm of the website dripping off every page. Wine beginners will find the book to be an invaluable resource, especially the Fundamentals section that offers great breakdowns on topics such as “How to Taste Wine” and “Food and Wine Pairings”. More advanced oenophiles, or those studying for certifications of one kind or another, will absolutely love the Wine Regions section. The maps are incredible! They’re colorful, detailed, and loaded with information. So. Much. Awesome. Information. Finally, anyone who loves wine will have a lot of fun with the Styles of Wine section. With wines broken down by variety, each page provides the profile, dominant flavors, and other possible flavors of said grape just for starters. This section lets you get interactive with a glass of wine too. Pour yourself a glass of wine, find it in the book, and start playing a game searching for some of the listed components, it’s fun, educational, and can challenge you and your senses.

Now we’re gonna give our copy away!
