Everything Happens
For A Riesling

Your not so fancy-pants guide to wine

The ultimate book for winos who don’t take themselves too seriously, but do seriously love their wine.

Everything Happens for a Riesling is the wine book that says boo to acting like a snob. It's your ultimate guide to hacking the world of vino. Grace De Morgan is here to help you get more of the wine experiences you want, minus the pretentiousness. 

This is a toolkit, not a textbook – a cheat sheet for all the vino-related questions you didn’t realise you had. I mean, where do you store wine if you don’t have a cellar? Who (or what) is Gewurztraminer? Are decanters a thing?

Whether you can’t tell your rose from your Riesling or are busy studying to be a Master Sommelier, Everything Happens for a Riesling has got something to make you go 'Mmm, more please.'
