Book Overview

A nicely structured, lightly acidic addition to the handy Snob's Dictionary series, decoding the baffling world of winespeak from A to Z. Wine Snob. The very phrase seems redundant, doesn't it? When faced with this snobbiest of snobberies, the civilian wine enthusiast needs the help of savvy translators like David Kamp and David Lynch. Their Wine Snob's Dictionary delivers witty explication of both old-school oeno-obsessions (What's...

This book is a must have, whether you are an obsessed fan of wine, or the casual drinker who always wanted to learn more. And with the holidays around the corner, this would make an excellent gift!

A perfect holiday gift

Anyone who likes wine, is interested in wine or is just simply curious and possibly looking to up their wine gamesmanship should definitely check out David Kamp's latest snob dictionary. Is a perfectly entertaining blend of wine-speak, esoterica and just some good laugh-out-loud stuff.


I'm infatuated with this book, my favorite so far in the classic Snob series. David Kamp will teach you how to fake it with humor if you're a novice, and brush up on your connoisseurship if you're not. I am looking forward to out-Snobbing my uncle Ray at Thanksgiving, and to giving out WSDs for Chanukah. Be your own sommelier. Can we please follow this up with the art snob's and the fashion snob's dictionaries?

Another winner for snobs!

Thank you David Kamp for another great holiday gift for my snobby wine buff friends and the perfect hostess gift for everyone -- so much better than a bottle of wine or a potted plant!

Fun, Funny, and Useful wine guide

No surprise: David Kamp has produced the perfect pairing for his Food Snob's Dictionary, which was the much-appreciated holiday gift to all my fancy foodie friends last season. This oenological guide from an author whose specialties include food, pop culture, and humor writing, perfectly satisfies my thirst for wine knowledge and did-you-know factoids, and my desire to giggle at the cork-sniffers. It's really fun and funny and yes, quite informative as well. The book's size and design are charming, too.
