How to Drink Wine and Influence People by Matthew Malvine

Matthew Malvine is the love child of Bacchus and Venus. Orphaned soon after birth, Matthew was found by a family of humble grape pickers on an abandoned vineyard in Burgundy, who suckled him on wild grapes and sunshine, which accounts for his preternatural ability to discern unique terroir from a distance, good wine from bad and his fundamental antipathy for most wine pricing to this day. Today, Matthew Malvine is the chief wine curmudgeon at He can be found scoffing and scowling at any gathering where wine is served. Just buy the damn book already...; )
