Speaking of resolutions, pack your bags and get ready to hit the road. With this, its first wine-focused guide, travel guide giant Lonely Planet charts a road map to the world’s greatest wine regions, with itineraries designed by experts, sommeliers and buyers. From Central Otago to Swartland, there’s no shortage of adventure (or wine) in this book.
Winemaking is often described as an art but at the end of the day, it is also delicious science. In this book, scientists Tattersall and Desalle deep dive into what’s in our glass, asking “what can science tell us about wine?” Spanning anthropology and biochemistry to neurobiology and everything inbetween, the authors engross and delight readers with accessible, fascinating stories that surprise even seasoned wine pros.
Sure, it’s a book of what are essentially infographics, but Pop Chart Lab’s colorful tome is enough to get design geeks hot under the collar. With clever, poster-worthy prints, the team explores beer, wine and spirits with maps, visual recipes, charts and graphs that stimulate the eye and palate.
