Overview

Serious but unpretentious, inspiring and fun, Thirsty Work celebrates wine and all that goes into making it and all who are involved in sharing it. Based on the way he teaches the subject of wine to his students at Fifteen, Matt Skinner breaks down all the information you need to feel confident when choosing and drinking wine. All the key topics in wine are covered - from how to taste to the key grapes; where and how wine is made to the range of styles - and his 24 hour faces of wine working around the clock, feature all the people who are involved in bringing wine to your table. In everyday terms, Skinner presents his subject on a unique and personal level.

Reviews

London's funkiest sommelier The Guardian; One of London's top sommeliers Square Meal; Matt is an accomplished wine writer, educator, and Head Sommelier at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen, on a mission to open a tradition bound world to new generations Fresh Partners; Wine is a bit like music or art. What you and I like might be two completely different things, but at the end of the day neither one of us is right, we just have different tastes. And, in a strange kind of way that's what makes the world go round. Matt Skinner
