Reading about wine

There is an enormous amount written about wine and food and wine.  Where people come across good stuff we will put a link here.

A good basic link is The Wine Society, Explore Wine page on

A really good book is one written by Susy Atkins, Wine Wisdom: A Complete Wine-tasting Course.  Another good basic book is Exploring Wine for Dummies.

A good short piece on how to identify the various scents in wine comes from Debra Meiburg MW's blog The Nose Knows and here is a Wine Aromas chart
