“I thank Ed Finstein for writing this book. I’m a person who loves to study and explore wines. I’m also aware of the reading trend towards mystery and international intrigue. So when I saw the Wine Spectator ad for this book, it was an automatic download on Kindle! It was a great read, with some very noteworthy wine education contained therein. I’ve bookmarked Doc’s website and will be sure to follow along. Thanks to him for educating the ‘rookies’ like me, who love wine but have to focus on the ‘day job.’”
