A young English teacher falls—glass first—into a love affair
and the world of wine when he meets a famous and enchanting sommelier.
Before Peter Hapworth meets Izzy, he knows the difference
between pinot noir and peanut butter, but that’s about it. Lonely and frustrated
with his academic career—as well as with dating—his life takes a sudden turn
one night when he turns on the television. He’s transfixed by the woman staring
back at him, a glass of wine swirling delicately in her hand—Isabelle Conway,
one of the preeminent sommeliers in the world. There’s something about her.
Somehow, he feels like he already knows her.
On a whim, he pitches himself as a guest on her popular television
show, and the two embark on a whirlwind courtship. But relationships require a
delicate balance of nurturing and belief, much like winemaking. Hapworth and
Izzy must navigate the complex mysteries of wine—and the heart—from glamorous
social events and domestic travails in Chicago to the vineyards and rocky bluffs
of Santorini in Greece. Vintage
