Melissa Monosoff, EscapeHatch’s favorite master sommelier, has a new wine book out: “Stuff Every Wine Snob Should Know.” You are gonna want a copy


There’s never been a time in the ten years I’ve known master sommelier Melissa Monosoff that seeing her, reading something she wrote or just hearing her name didn’t make me smile. That woman radiates happiness. Or maybe it’s alcohol. Same thing. Either way, she has a new wine guide out today (Amazon) that’s written for you, me and your crazy Aunt in mind.

“The book is for the enthusiast looking to spice up their knowledge in an ironically not snobby but approachable and fun way,” Monosoff says. “Seasoned sommeliers and newbie wine fans alike will learn expert tasting techniques, which glassware to use and when, how to pair wine with food, how to build a wine collection (no fancy cellar needed!) and even how to open a bottle of wine when no one brought a corkscrew. Plus, guides to wine lingo, proper serving temperatures, and the best wines for every price point,” writes the publisher. It’s a fun read and might make a nice, innocent gift for Valentine’s Day.

Ten bucks. Six if you go digital. Buy it here.
