    One thought on “Into Wine: An Invitation to Pleasure”

    1. Part wine-culture primer, part sommelier (wine steward) memoir, and part agricultural guide, this book presents a consistently enlightening and oft-entertaining perspective on the wine industry.Our guide is Olivier Magny, native Frenchman and owner of O Chateau – a top ranked wine tasting school & wine bar. Magny may very well be the anti-winesnob. His passion and vigor for wine is matched only by a genial desire for laymen consumers to cut through the jargon and be better informed, rather [...]

    2. I guess this is an interesting enough book if you know nothing about wine. Magny does a good job at making the world of wine approachable, without any of the snobbery that is usually involved in the subject. The book is informative but in a fun way. It is more an introduction to a way of life than a fact-filled “everything you ever wanted to know about wine” kind of book. That said, I only gave Into Wine a two-star rating because I felt Magny aimed his book at a non-French audience and tried [...]

    3. 4.5 starsA few weeks ago I went on a vacation to France. I found myself wondering the streets of Paris and stumbled across O Chateau. I'm from California and a big wine connoisseur, so I decided to stop in for a tasting. O Chateau is beautiful and captivating. Most of the place is underground in a wine cellar. I had the best time walking around, playing with their interactive wine trivia games, and speaking with a very knowledgeable wine pourer. I noticed Into Wine behind the wine tasting area a [...]

    4. “But out of all the obscure nonsense infused in the world of wine, there is one word I’m in love with — one word the French language had the elegance to give birth to and to nurture. That word is: terroir.”“… there is no understanding wine if you don’t have a good grasp of what terroir means.”“Le terroir is what turns wine lovers on.”For Olivier Magny (Parisian sommelier, wine educator and entrepreneur) terroir is a way of life. It’s a set of values, an active stance one ta [...]

    5. I took an afternoon's course at Chateau O in Paris several years ago, and this book captures Olivier's vibe quite well. It is mostly a treatise on the importance of ecologically sustainable wine, trumpeting the virtues of organic and biodynamic methods and small producers. (Adding some sulphur is apparently okay, however :-). Terrrioir is the thing, and mass-produced wines are mostly anonymous--he really does a good sell on drinking interesting wine that has a strong connection to the land and t [...]

    6. I don't drink wine and I am not planning to start, so I really only read this for book club. I found some of the statistics in the book about farming and organic produce very intersting. I did not like the almost unending footnotes (there were 438). I kept wishing that he had simply put his interjections into the text since I had to keep flipping (tapping, really, since I read it on my Kindle) back and forth. There are things I can take from the book despite not drinking wine like his observatio [...]

    7. An insider look at the world of wine from the ground up, so to speak, as Magny gives a clear explanation of that sometimes confusing concept, terroir. He also explains the nuances of wine making, letting the reader in on why using less artificial pesticides, fertilizers will allow the wine to express a local flavor, instead of being a mass produced product. Nice book for getting some down to earth education about wine without the jargon and pretentiousness.

    8. This is the second book I've read by Olivier Magny. He has a slightly quirky sense of humor and this book reads quickly. He writes about the importance of terroir in the art of winemaking, but it quickly becomes clear that this terroir can be an analogy for many things of importance in life. Like the vines he is so interested in, we must grow deep roots or suffer the same consequences of bad wine. An excellent read.

    9. I bought this book to learn about wine. I ended up learning so much more, especially on the importance of organic and biodynamic farming. Written in a fun and relaxed tone, the book explained the essence of choosing a good bottle of wine without using the dry and encyclopedic approach that I often found in other wine books.

    10. A charming and very French look at all things wine and wonderful. Magny is a devotee of soil and biodynamics and his passion for the magic of terroir is infectious. The book augments deep wine knowledge with silly asides and the footnotes are some of the best parts of the book.

    11. Very in depth from go to woe. The main lesson is to enjoy the wine you like without worring about what the wine snobs say.

    12. Good instructions for real livingStarting as a story, the book ends up being advice for a better way of life. it has good info on wine from growing to buying.
