Bernal Oenophile Kickstarting Book on “The Essence of Wine”


Neighbor Alder Yarrow is the founder and editor of the famous Vinography wine blog, and he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign to secure pre-orders for a coffee table book called “The Essence of Wine”:

This book is unlike any wine book ever produced. It is first an art book — an incredible collection of intimate images and accompanying prose that celebrate the different individual flavors and aromas found in wine. It is also an educational book and a wine guide, directing readers to easily findable wines that can broaden their horizons as wine drinkers.

The book will appeal to anyone who enjoys indulging their senses, from the foodie who wants a wine book that doesn’t read like a dictionary, to the wine novice looking to educate their palate. Even the wine connoisseur will return again and again to savor the beauty of these images with wine glass in hand and the book in their lap.

Neighbor Alder’s Kickstarter has an $18,000 goal, with about $62oo remaining (at this writing) before the January 1 cutoff.

    Finally, an intrepid author endeavors to unlock the mysteries of the nearly unheard-of beverage!

    It’s more photography than words withako30, and is meant for perusing with a glass of wine in hand. It will be educational to some, and merely inspirational to others.
