Sandra’s Wine Life: Find your Wine Identity by Sandra Guibord
Luxury Products
Sandra's Wine Lief: Find Your Wine Identity by Sandra Guibord We recently went to a wine tasting party at a friend's house, where we blind tasted five different types of wine. What was interesting was that we learned many of the guests regularly only drink one type of wine. That got us thinking; are you "stuck" in a wine groove? Sandra's Wine Life: Find Your Wine Identity written by Sandra Guibord is fun, informational, approachable, and gets you to think differently about your wine selections; by type, by region, by taste, and by season. She also has great recipes to pair with the wine to make you a star at your next gathering no matter what the season or occasion. Cheers!
