Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Karen MacNeil.

On a Recent Price of Business, Kevin Price visited with award winning and bestselling author, Karen MacNeil.
Karen MacNeil’s The Wine Bible has long been the most enlightening, comprehensive, and entertaining wine guide on the market—with over 800,000 copies in print, it is the bestselling wine book in America. And now it is completely revised and updated. Hailed as “America’s missionary of the vine” (Time), MacNeil is considered one of only a handful of experts with a global command of wine. THE WINE BIBLE, 3RD EDITION (Workman Publishing; October 11, 2022) brims with MacNeil’s knowledge and passion for the subject while artful, evocative descriptions bring each wine to life.


A white Bordeaux is “wonderfully herbal, the flavor could make you feel as though you were drinking a neon version of botanical herbs.” An Italian Barolo is “an ethereal comingling of damp forest floor, wild strawberries, dried herbs, pomegranate, and cardamom.”  A German Riesling is “like some black hole of intensity, devouring matter around it and turning it into delicious stardust.” Transporting you from the cool, emerald green hills of Oregon’s Willamette Valley to the warm shores of the Mediterranean, MacNeil delves into the history, food, wineries, and flavors of each region. At more than 700 pages, the reader will find a breathtaking collection of photos, visits of wine locations from around the world, a deeper look at wine’s history (going back to the Ancient World), and more.


According to a statement, “THE WINE BIBLE, 3RD EDITION offers the ultimate education in wine from one of the most renowned experts of our time. Complete with all-new full-color photographs and brimming with the most up-to-date information the wine world has to offer, it will inspire and educate every reader, be they new to wine or a longtime enthusiast.
