The Everyday Guide to Wine


Description: Wine has been a part of human civilization for thousands of years, since at least the time of the ancient Egyptians. It’s been used as a communal beverage, a sign of power and prestige, and even as a religious symbol. Studies show that wine also can have a positive effect on your well-being; when enjoyed in moderation, wine may offer benefits for cardiovascular health, longevity, stress reduction, and more. Further, every time you open a bottle of wine, you embark on a journey through a wonderful world of sensations. For all its pleasurable qualities, though, wine can be bewildering in its mystery and complexity. Unlocking the secrets of wine – its varieties, the ways it’s made, the techniques of tasting and shopping for it – is the key to heightening your appreciation of this intense and rewarding experience. Whether you’re a novice looking to master the basics, an enthusiast who tours vineyards, or somewhere in between, there’s no better way to learn about wine than from a wine expert – someone who has an authoritative knowledge of wine in all its glorious breadth and depth. Now, The Everyday Guide to Wine brings this rare opportunity right into your home with 24 engaging lectures delivered by acclaimed Master of Wine Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, one of only 26 Americans to hold this coveted title. In her interactive and accessible course she gives you all the knowledge and tips you need to build your understanding and improve your ability to try, buy, talk about, and – most of all – enjoy the world of wine.

What Happened, Miss Simone?

Classically trained pianist, dive-bar chanteuse, black power icon and legendary recording artist, Nina Simone lived a life of brutal honesty, musical genius and tortured melancholy. In this epic documentary, director Liz Garbus interweaves never-before-heard recordings and rare archival footage together with Nina’s most memorable songs, to create an unforgettable portrait of one of the least understood, yet most beloved, artists of our time.

WHAT HAPPENED, MISS SIMONE? is a Netflix original, using recently unearthed audiotapes, recorded over the course of three decades, of Nina telling her life story to various interviewers and would-be biographers. From over 100 hours of these recordings, the film weaves together Nina’s narrative, told largely in her own words. Rare concert footage and archival interviews, along with diaries, letters, interviews with Nina’s daughter, Lisa Simone Kelly, friends and collaborators, along with other exclusive materials, make this the most authentic, personal and unflinching telling of the extraordinary life of one of the 20th century’s greatest recording artists.
