The Library and Books on the Common welcome Jon Bonné to discuss his new book The New Wine Rules: A Genuinely Helpful Guide to Everything You Need to Know. (Ten Speed Press | Penguin Random House, November 14).

There are few greater pleasures in life than enjoying a wonderful glass of wine. So why does finding and choosing one you like seem so stressful? Now, becoming a happier, more confident wine drinker is easy. The first step is to forget all the needlessly complicated stuff the “experts” have been telling you. In The New Wine Rules, acclaimed wine writer Jon Bonné explains everything you need to know in simple, beautifully illustrated, easy-to-digest tidbits. And the news is good! For example: Nearly every pairing ‘rule’ can be disproven. You can drink rosé any time of year. Don’t save a great bottle for anything more than a rainy day.

See, things are better already. With information about buying, storing, sharing, and – of course – drinking wine, The New Wine Rulesis the ultimate gift for all wine lovers, including yourself.

Jon Bonné is one of the leading American voices writing on wine today. He is the senior contributing editor at Punch, author of The New California Wine, winner of the Roederer International Wine Book of the Year, and the wine consultant for JetBlue Airways. For nearly a decade, he served as the wine editor and chief wine critic of the San Francisco Chronicle, where he won two James Beard Awards and numerous other accolades.

The New Wine Rules will be available for purchase and signing.
