Tell me your favorite wine book. I have read The Wine Bible, Wine Folly. I am considering ordering The New Wine Rules

or Wine Simple. What do you recommend?

Not a guide or encyclopedia, but a very good story.
Judgement of Paris. about 1976 when a supposed nobody nothing wine from California beat French wines in a blind Parisian test. Shock and partly turned around an industry, eventually both sales and perceptions.
Great nonfiction.
Also a movie called Bottle Shock, based on the book, with Chris Pine and the late, great Alan Rickman.
