By Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg

Little, Brown and Company, $35

In this sequel to their award-winning What to Drink with What You Eat, husband and wife team Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg invite readers to join them on another friendly journey into the world of wine and food. In an A-to-Z format, their book profiles hundreds of wines, focusing for the most part on flavor and how the wines pair with food. Their premise—that food lovers know flavor and therefore have the chops to understand, discover, and choose great wines to go with their meals—allows the authors to leave behind confusing wine statistics, vintages, critical wine scores, and tongue-tying wine classifi cations. Instead, they enliven their wine story-telling by going straight to the country’s foremost sommeliers for food and wine pairing guidance. The book’s chatty armchair tone is authoritative yet approachable, and sidebars such as Understanding a Wine’s Personality, which assigns personas to wines, are playful entry points to understanding how wine fits into a meal.
