Hi, I recently read your book on French wine and enjoyed it. I would like to pick up a copy of the Italian wine book too. The amazon page for your book lists the publication date as 2014, but then in the book description the first sentence reads "updated for 2022!" (https://www.amazon.com/Decoding-Italian-Wine-Beginners-Practices/dp/1503136914) Just wanted to make sure I'm not on the wrong link within amazon and buying the old edition -- I seemed to get burned on amazon often enough buying one thing and then having something else show up in the mail. Has anything with that Italian wine book changed since it was initially published? If so can you provide the link for the most recent edition. Thanks

I ordered the paper copy of the Decoding Italian Wine book from the amazon link I included above and as you suggested the inside cover says copyright 2022. If you want to email me a PDF that would be much appreciated. The PDF copy would be handy at the wine store when trying to sort through the Italian wines. Thanks!

Hi Russell, glad to hear you enjoyed our French wine book. We actually are in the process of updating the Italian one. I believe right now the print version is updated so if you were planning on buying that you should be all set. The Kindle is still being formatted. If you run into any problems let me know and I can email you a PDF too

Did you see on the Cellartracker 2021 summary of the year, they picked KS wines in top ten to watch?

Just tried the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Very disappointed! No taste, and very coarse! Didn't match your review or the bottle description. Not worth $5 never mind $15. May be a bad bottle or lot but no evidence of such from cork.

From what I've read, they only ship to CA. :-(
