FREE - Far from Ordinary Wine Guide 2005-06 by Doug Frost MW MS and Wines from Spain USA

Melanie Wong Dec 28, 2006 07:22 PM

Haven't seen the 120-page book yet myself, but the Spanish wine buyer from a local retailer tells me it's quite good. And, the price is right, complimentary from Wines from Spain.

    Thanks for the info. Spanish reds are one of my favorite types of wine. I find them to be among the best values on the shelf. I am retired and work part time for a wine retailer. One of the benefits is that I can buy at just over cost. I still find myself buying Spanish garnachas at well under $10.

    Tres Picos
    Las Rocas
    Borsao
    Garnacha de Fuego

    All favorites of mine.

      Melanie, thanks for the heads up, I just ordered mine!
      However, 2005-06 sounds like leftovers from previous editions, since current guides all carry the 2007 label on the covers.
      Anyways, it's a free horse ...

        A very good book except it leads one into trying and drinking all sorts of Spanish wines.

        And when listing favorite Spanish wines, I have to add:

        Castano Monastrell from Yecla
        Juan Gil Jumilla (also a Monastrel)
