THE WINE BRATS’ GUIDE TO LIVING, WITH WINE Jeff Bundschu, Jon Sebastiani, Mike Sangiacomo, and the Wine Brats Coalition (St. Martin’s Griffin, $16.95) If the very thought of selecting the perfect vino sends you scurrying into the arms of St. Pauli Girl, this is the book for you. Written by the founders and members of the Wine Brats — a national wine-appreciation organization devoted to demystifying the beverage’s often snooty image — the tome’s various essays are united by a single theme: If it tastes good, then it’s the right wine. Forget tired food-combination rules — this book devotes entire sections to unorthodox pairings (Pepperidge Farm Sausalitos with zinfandel), recipes for ”martini grigio” and ”sauvignon sour,” and tips on how to throw a tasting soiree on a budget. We’ll drink to that. B+
