Billed as "practical audio for people on the go," Freeway Guides' latest release, WINE APPRECIATION, is a lighthearted tutorial on the basics of wine. Briskly covering a wealth of material—from the origins of wine to its different types—this guide mirrors a cultural trend toward wine appreciation. Host Robin Stark, a well-known wine expert, gives a genuinely warm and funny treatment without any of the condescending air wine snobs are known for, although she employs a genuine snob—in the character of the pompous Charles—along with a host of narrative foils, to lend expertise and levity. Stark's delivery is flippant but never condescending. She’s just the kind of person you'd like to sit down and have a glass of wine with.
