    Resumo I've bought it, so i'll drink it

    ‘A very funny book to dip in and out of and would make the perfect present for the wine bore in your life’The Independent, Drinks Books of the Year.
    For people who wouldn’t know a Romanée-Conti from a bad-boy Argentine Malbec, or a glass of Château d’Yquem from a can of orange Tango, I’ve Bought It, So I’ll Drink It is the essential book. Based on the authors’ acclaimed wine blog Sediment, it has almost nothing to do with fine wines and almost everything to do with the social, financial, marital, personal, conceptual and hardware issues surrounding middle-class wine drinking.
    Covering such vital topics as getting cheap wine from corner shops; how to ingratiate yourself with a wine merchant; handling wine in a box as well as in a five-litre plastic flagon with a tap; dealing with pichets, duff corkscrews and unbreakable tumblers; wine drinking in the Georgian era; and including an hommage to le Piat d’Or – this is a book that wrestles wine out of the bottle, pins it down and makes it tell the unpalatable truth.
    CJ and PK – widely, and perhaps even correctly, believed to be Charles Jennings and Paul Keers – have broken away from the conventional world of wine-writing, with its secret vocabulary and insufferable air of superiority. For those of us who so often fail to detect notes of citrus and caramel but mainly get a hint of alcohol with a grapey finish, I’ve Bought It, So I’ll Drink It is as refreshing as a glass of decent Muscadet on a summer’s day.

    Mais Informações I've bought it, so i'll drink it

    For people who wouldn't know a Romanee-Conti from a bad-boy Argentine malbec, or a glass of Chateau d'Yquem from a can of orange Tango, help is at hand. Based on the authors' highly esteemed blog, 'Sediment' (described by Nicholas Lezard of The Guardian as 'the finest wine blog known to humanity'), I've Bought It, So I'll Drink It takes a wry look at the social, financial, personal and marital issues surrounding middle-class wine drinking. Covering such vital topics as befriending a wine merchant, high-street wine from supermarkets and corner shops, tools of the trade like the pichet and tumblers, dining-table wine etiquette, wine in a box, the cubi flagon, wine drinking in the Georgian era, and even homage to le Piat d'Or, this is not a book that takes wine too seriously. Instead, it wrestles it out of the bottle, pins it down and makes it tell the truth - in language we can all understand. By writing humorously, and much more broadly than specialist wine writers, CJ and PK break out of the wine-writing niche, with its exclusive vocabulary and faint air of superiority.For those of us who so often fail to detect notes of citrus and caramel, but mainly get a hint of alcohol with a grapey finish, the book is as refreshing as a glass of decent Muscadet on a summer's day; it is also the perfect gift for the wine drinker to whom you don't want to give wine.
