MEDIA REVIEWS
"The complexity and subtlety of the distinctions made by master tasters is quite astonishing, and is all the more interesting when comparing notes with others." (Network Review, 1 June 2011) "It turns out that not only have reputable psychologists at well-respected institutions done experimental studies on this effect, but it also serves as a kind of foul point for various philosophical questions. The works set out to address the intersection between philosophy and areas of everyday general concern: food, wine, and beer. In addition to straightforward philosophical discussions, the volumes include historical discussions, legal questions, some personal reflections." (Gastronomica, Fall 2008) "It has some of the best, thoughtful essays about wine and health, winemaking, wine appreciation, wine jargon and wine writers...a very smart book about wine." (InsideBayArea.com) "A truly well rounded view...and a critical reflection on what and how we eat can contribute to a robust enjoyment of gastronomic pleasures." (Gourmet Retailer) "A rare treat. These grape-stained craftsmen dive into their subjects with Socratic gusto. Nuggets of wit ... throughout." (Wine Enthusiast)
