Guide Book

It’s here! My new (old) book The Knackered Mother’s Wine Guide is out now in paperback! When I first wrote it eight – EIGHT! – years ago I wanted the book to be like a (funny) Highway Code for wine, covering all the stuff you really need to know when it comes to choosing a great bottle. This refresh means I’ve been able to add more bits including new regions, wine styles and grapes. And it’s got a gorgeous new cover to boot. I’m really thrilled with it and hope, if you decide to buy it, that you’ll find it useful. And funnier than the actual Highway Code, obviously.

To celebrate publication day, you know that brilliant wine decanter/preserver I told you about, the eto? I’ve got one to give away. Honestly, it’s been a game-changer for me. And it’s worth £140, btw. All you have to do to win one is leave a comment on the blog (or on my KMWC Facebook page or Instagram) and a winner will be picked next week. In the meantime, if you want to have a peek at the book online click here.

T&Cs: UK residents only. Must be over 18 years old to enter. Competition closes on 14th February 2020 at 11.59pm. The winner will be notified by email and the prize will be posted to the winner after that date.

  1. I’ve tried so many different and great wines on your recommendation! Thank you!

  2. Any book like this that educates average wine drinkers to drink better is a must; value for money is essential but cheap is usually not the route to take. Brilliant!

    Whow 8 years ago!!! I have the original book and it is great, back then it was something totally different to read from the wine world 🙂

  4. I’ve got the original book and have the new one pre-ordered so I can’t wait to receive it! It’s a valuable asset on my book shelf that’s for sure!

  5. Love your wine recommendations, thank you.

    I have the original book, and can’t wait to get the new book too. Definitely a go-to book when you want to improve your knowledge of wines, as it doesn’t over complicate things, great tips, good food and wine matching, and makes learning about wine fun!

    Really looking forward to reading your book. I have given it as a present but never read it myself !

    Took my mum’s advice and now read your blog. Not knackered just yet but still appreciate the wine tips.

  9. Always like your wine picks, will have a look at the book.
