Praise for My Wine Guide (made simple) Paperback edition: Fantastic Wine Guide!!! My Wine Guide (made simple) is written in a clear and concise manner. It is an easy to read book containing much research and detailed information.The photos and maps are beautiful and open your eyes to the various regions. I found the food and wine pairing section extremely helpful in planning a menu. I have always shied away from trying different wines and stayed within my comfort zone. My Wine Guide (made simple) has introduced me to many wines that I would never have thought of ordering before reading this book. A glossary at the end of the book is an added bonus for those learning the language of wine. - Regina McLean, via Amazon.com
Superb and Gorgeous Reference Book I have been a wine lover for a very long time, but I have always tended to stay with what I know, and I guess that I am St-Cyr’s target audience because before reading this book, if I was confronted with a wine list that didn’t contain familiar grapes from California, I was pretty much like a deer staring into headlights. Since reading My Wine Guide (made simple), though, I have ordered Spanish wines in a wine bar, and Super Tuscans in an Italian restaurant with confidence—and liked them! This informative, and easy-to-read book has definitely expanded my horizons, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Take it to restaurants, take it shopping with you, curl up on the couch with a glass of wine and just enjoy reading it. The maps are gorgeous and the carefully chosen images really enhance the text. An all-around superb reference book! -Shannon, via Amazon.com
Simply Fantastic! I am fully impressed with Mr. Saint-Cyr's depth of knowledge and the scope of information that he covers in this one little book. It's the perfect little companion for the beginning wine taster or the intermediate vinophile who wants to be able to order with confidence. Far from stuffy or snobby, My Wine Guide (made simple) is exactly what it claims, simple. For the sake of full disclosure, I worked with Mr. Saint-Cyr on this book. Having said this, I can attest to the depth of research that he has done. You will not find more up-to-date information on the current state of the North American (Canadian and US) wine industries anywhere else in print. He's a stickler for details, and although you're not inundated with them you'll be glad you stuck around for all the important tidbits he includes here. -Tamara, via Amazon.com
Highly Recommended to All, For All Different Reasons This book has something to offer for individuals possessing any amount of wine knowledge. The photos, food pairings, and especially the quotes were interesting parts to mull over. Not fraught with too much technical jargon, the information is succinct, and pertinent to any purchase or pairing that you might find yourself deliberating. It's truly made the world of wines much simpler for me, a University student at the introductory level. -Christopher, via Amazon.com
Excellent Wine Guide - Perfect Purchase I love the maps, photos and label illustrations as they are very helpful to understand the many different countries the author is speaking about. The sections pertaining to the grape varieties and especially the food pairing make this a very interesting and informative book that all wine lovers should consider purchasing. -S.M. O'Connor, via Amazon.com
