Get the Collector’s Edition
The collector’s edition box includes Wine Folly: Magnum Edition, fine Austrian crystal glass, a wine journal, and more.
A major upgrade.
Since the first edition, we rebuilt Wine Folly from the ground up, with over two times the content.
Explore the world of wine while you taste and gain deep and practical knowledge using Wine Folly’s revolutionary visual learning method.
This is a great book for all levels of wine expertise, but I have found it to be especially good for teaching our new employees… while we taste wines with our crew.
