Wine expert uncovers world of wine from personal, humorous perspective

In his book, “The Advanced Oenophile” (ISBN), Denman Moody presents wine fans with a new, entertaining and educational book that provides practical information that can only be obtained from a professional who has spent more than three decades reviewing and critiquing wine.

Moody shares his vast knowledge gained from his evolution as a wine journalist and editor to wine consultant who has sampled prized vintages along the way. Moody’s book includes articles he has penned that give readers a unique perspective of the world of wine.

Readers will be informed about the main wine regions throughout the world, and are treated with wine knowledge separators, facts that even the most passionate wine lovers typically do not know. Moody also includes his recommendations for wine purchases that fit every budget.

“The Advanced Oenophile” includes six articles and chapters written by experts in their respective fields. Two articles are written by the number one expert in the world for the topics of Port and Madeira.

Moody has been involved with the world of wine since joining the International Wine and Food Society in 1974. He has tasted many of the best and most valuable wines ever produced. Most of the fabled vintages were from Bordeaux, France, and dated as far back as 1819.

Well-known wine experts have stated Moody’s book is perfect for wine lovers wanting to take it to the next level, and Moody wants his readers to feel the same way.

“While it seems like my book is more appropriate for those who are already into wine, there is plenty of information for novice wine drinkers who want to enjoy a fine bottle of wine,” Moody says. “My book shows them how to do that without having to go to Bordeaux or Napa Valley every time.”

“The Advanced Oenophile” is available for sale online at and other channels.
