Richard Betts is one of fewer than two hundred master sommeliers in the world, but he’s no wine snob and he hates wine-speak. In the first book of its kind, he helps readers scratch and sniff their way to expertise by introducing the basic components of wine—the fruits, the wood, the earth—enabling anyone to discover the difference between a Syrah and a Sangiovese and get the glass they love every time. Humorously illustrated, with 16 scents, this irresistible gift puts the fun back in wine fundamentals.

"Smart, fun, enlightening, and refreshingly free of snobbery."
Real Simple
"The master sommelier Richard Betts’s clever new scratch-and-sniff book is likely to broaden the novice’s appreciation of wine, explaining how aromas relate to different varietals.... A useful chart that ties bouquets to wines is tucked inside."
—Florence Fabricant for The New York Times
"Fiendishly clever."

“We  recently had the immense privilege and pleasure of interviewing Richard  Betts, who is not only a master sommelier and one-half of the unpretentious Betts & Scholl wine-making cooperative; but also an astoundingly witty guy. We chatted with  Richard about partnering with renowned contemporary artists to  create some of the coolest bottle labels ever; schrooming and the  inauspicious beginnings of Betts & Scholl; Dr. Dre; and Richard’s newest  project Cc: (more stellar wines at jaw-dropping prices).”- GiltBar
“[Richard Betts] has one of the best palates in the business, having worked as wine director for the crazy good Montagna at the Little Nell before branching off into a wine- and mezcal-making career (Betts & Scholl and Sombra, among the labels he formed).” -Colorado Wino
