This new collection by the acclaimed novelist—and, according to Salon, “the best wine writer in America”—is generous and far-reaching, deeply knowledgeable and often hilarious. 
  Here McInerney provides a master class in the almost infinite varieties of wine and the people and places that produce it all the world over, from the historic past to the often confusing present. From such legendary châteaus as Margaux and Latour and Palmer to Australia and New Zealand and South Africa, to new contenders in Santa Rita Hills and Paso Robles, we learn about terroir  and biodynamic viticulture, what Champagnes are affordable (or decidedly not), even what to drink over thirty-seven courses at Ferran Adrià's El Bulli—in all, an array of grapes and wine styles that is comprehensive and thirst inducing. And conspicuous throughout is McInerney’s trademark flair and expertise, which in 2006 prompted the James Beard Foundation to grant him the MFK Fisher Distinguished Writing Award.

Listener Opinions

    " Maybe it's just me, but I find reading about wine much like dancing about architecture--impossible to experience the actual beauty of the thing in the documented form. But I bet the audiobook playing in your ear while sipping a bottle of something great is a much more satisfying experience... "

    " Well respected wine writer divulges his innermost affection for a varietal per chapter, in this wine lover's treat. A great read, but only for those who appreciate wine. I loved it! "
