Hello, Wine is a stress-free wine education in short form, delivered in bytes of information, accessible recommendations, and tasting party menus. This chunky handbook package, written by Master Sommelier Melanie Wagner, with 60 watercolor illustrations by Lucy Engelman, explores the world of wine in 12 chapters in a way that's neither too technical or over simplified to appeal to a young audience just getting into wine.
Melanie Armstrong is a certified sommelier, wine teacher and writer. She interned for Karen MacNeil (U.S. doyenne of wine writing, and author of The Wine Bible) and she received a scholarship to attend The Professional Symposium for Wine Writers in America.
