Wine & Something Else

MC Wine Books

Copello is a Brazilian wine writer and reportedly “most influential” in his country and its wine industry. Wine & Something Else is an illustrated collection of 31 wine-related essays, translated into English by Joao Ayres. If whiskey inspires country and blues music, wine surely inspires philosophy. Or, in this case, free association. Some essays are straightforward (“Wine & Cheese,” “Wine & Aroma”); others wander off into the tall grass (“Wine & Cockroaches,” “Wine & Dogs”). Copello’s tone is amiable and non-condescending, but some points he tries to make appear to get lost in translation. Above all, he wants to make wine accessible. He succeeds, mostly.
