James Nevison and Kenji Hodgson, known collectively as 'Halfaglass', endured tasting copious amounts of wine to create Have a Glass (Whitecap $19.95), a guide for 20-something wine-buffs. Steering clear of complicated terminology, the duo explore wine history and help young connoisseurs choose the perfect vintage, sample the latest trend and order with confidence in a restaurant. Success with the book led to follow-ups such as Had a Glass: Top 100 Wines for 2007 and Had A Glass 2009: Top 100 Wines for 2009 Under $20.
