I had the pleasure of joining the Taub Family Selections for lunch on a lovely day in May. We toasted the book launch of White Wine by Jeff Jensen and Mike DeSimone at the Manhatta Rooftop.
White Wine: The Comprehensive Guide to the 50 Essential Varieties & Styles is the latest book release from authors, journalists, and educators Jeff Jenssen and Jeff Jenssen who discussed their book and shared some fantastic pairings over a seasonally inspired luncheon. I had the pleasure to call Jeff and Mike maestros, as the Spanish word for “teachers” since they have been Wine Educators in more than one wine-tasting seminar I have joined through the years to learn about Prosecco or Cava, for instance.

White Wine: The Comprehensive Guide to the 50 Essential Varieties & Styles
White Wine is the companion to their first book, Red Wine, which spans the globe covering the most coveted white varieties, delving into the histories and critical regions for each and winemakers crafting standout expressions. I have been digging and enjoying their pages where we can discover cheerful bargains to worthy splurges. In addition, the authors suggest that practicing with a recommended bottle of white wine can make the experience of transforming knowledge into an adventure more enjoyable.
White Wine by Jeff Jensen and Mike DeSimone is a must-read wine book for the summer and beyond. The book is available on Amazon, and the White Wines from Taub Family Selections are widely available through Total Wines and Wine.com
