FORGET EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW ABOUT WINE
Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew are here to celebrate the universe of awe-inspiring wine, to take you to vinous places you’ve never been before. In Wine from Another Galaxy, the duo behind Noble Rot magazine and restaurant give the definitive guide to tasting, ordering in restaurants, talking about wine (without sounding like a wine bore) and building your own collection. Knowing, essentially, how and where to track down the good stuff.
Noble Rot has become a place of pilgrimage for wine worshippers worldwide, a buzzing and welcoming scene that sees everyone from wine buffs and collectors to film and rock stars hanging out with the vignerons and chefs who flock to the place. In this book, Keeling and Andrew aim to make wine knowledge as accessible and pleasurable as dinner in their restaurant.
Wine from Another Galaxy strikes out into the unknown: rather than the big commercial wine brands with their bloated budgets, the writers explore off the beaten track, meeting extraordinary small production artisanal winemakers, unearthing delicious hidden gems and educating themselves via first-hand experiences. They’ve spent years discovering and spending time with everyone from the original thinkers
of the natural wine movement to the iconic names of Burgundy and Bordeaux. They showcase the most exciting wineries from emerging destinations such as Tenerife, Santorini and Mount Etna (plus the best restaurant wine lists) along the way. All done with their signature humour, irreverence and insight.
Strap in for the ride of a lifetime. In the hands of Keeling and Andrew, wine is never less than a blast: in the Noble Rot galaxy, the usual clichés and rules don’t apply. But the thrill of discovery never stops.

"It’s a good Burgundy of a wine book, one that deserves savouring" The New York Times
"Noble Rot manages to unravel the mysteries of wine with insight and humour. A wonderful - and essential - read for anyone interested in the world of wine, or even for those, like me, who just drink it." Nigella Lawson
"The Noble Rot guys have the ability to describe wines as if they're either future friends, or rock-stars coming to blow your mind." Caitlin Moran
"Noble Rot has brought originality, humour and now space travel to the very serious business of drinking wine. About time too." Brian Eno
"Dan and Mark do that thing that only crazy knowledgeable enthusiasts can do, they make you a crazy enthusiast too. If they said, 'We've found a wine like no other, a wine that actually lights up the sky, but you can only drink it in the desert at midnight, are you coming? Id be off, and I'd be confident of meteor showers. They provoke curiosity - 'how does anyone make this extraordinary drink just with grapes?' - excitement, joy, and a longing for knowledge. Now, in this book, they're sharing the knowledge." Diana Henry
"To really know and love a wine one should know the grower and the vineyard. This isn't always or even often possible, which is why the Rotters introduce these wines at source. You learn that making wine, as cooking should be, is an act of love. You will come to love this book too." Rowley Leigh
