The eagerly awaited third volume in the offbeat BC wine guide the Vancouver Sun calls “the perfect go-to.”
In the third volume in the popular, offbeat Sipster’s Pocket Guide series, wine expert and educator Luke Whittall presents his latest top 50 British Columbia wines under $50 (including many under $30) and along the way shares his thoughts on wine country and common misconceptions about certain grapes, and offers up tangents on everything from scented candles to middle children to sweatshirt weather.
With food and activity pairings that range from Thai noodles and pool noodles to Schubert and hootenannies, and an index of attitudes that lets you choose a wine based on your mood, the Sipster’s guides are equal parts freewheeling and focused.
Divided into chapters on sparkling, white, rosé, red, and dessert wines, the latest volume of Sipster’s will snap you out of a catatonic funk in the liquor store and stick around for a quiet evening paging through a book—perhaps this book and perhaps there’s even a wine for that.
Welcome to Volume 3, where a Viognier can be a lot like a bouncy castle, the right red blend can have you busting out your best cravat, and an adventurous evening calls for a certain Trebianno (not the guy from Friends . . . but then again, maybe?).
