BBR to release new book

UK fine wine merchant Berry Bros & Rudd is to launch a new book to complement its Wine School courses.

The new 240-page book, entitled: “Exploring & Tasting Wine: A wine course with digressions”, will be released on 7 September.

Featuring a foreword by the actress Emma Thompson, the core of the book follows the BBR wine tasting course and introduces readers to key grape varieties and regions with “optional digressions” along the way that delve deeper into the wine world.

Head of Berry Bros. & Rudd’s Wine School, Rebecca Lamont, explained: “To enjoy it, you need only one qualification: you appreciate wine. Whether you have just discovered this (the course assumes no prior knowledge) or whether you have simply never had time to pull together your knowledge, we can prove to you that anyone can be a good taster.”

The book also contains graphics to help convey the scent, taste and balance of various wines developed by Lizzie Ballantyne, an award-winning designer for wine and food books and a former student on the course.

Christopher Foulkes who led the editorial team said:  “In 30-plus years of publishing wine books, this is the nearest we have come to conveying the taste and character of wine on the page in graphic form.”

Out on 7 September, the book has an RRP of £30.
