Tis the Season for Wine & Spirits Book Reviews

It has never been more clear to me that authors scramble to get their books published just in time for the holiday season. It had better be released now, or the reviews will be missed in the holidaze craze of reviewing.

What’s come to me (or I’ve been queried to see if I’d write about on this blog) in the past couple of months, follows below.  I’ll also have a holiday wine blog for gift giving, with books that I’ve enjoyed all coming back, again. For now, though, this is how that blog is shaping up.

  1. 2010 Food & Wine Wine Guide ~ Anthony Giglio
  2. Been Doon So Long ~ Randall Grahm
  3. Into the Earth: A Wine Cave Renaissance ~ Daniel D’Agostini with Molly Chappellet
  4. In Search of Bacchus, Wanderings in the Wonderful World of Wine Tourism ~ George M. Taber
  5. Tequila, The Spirit of Mexico ~ Enrique Martinez Limón, given to me by my client Tequila Semental
  6. The Psychology of Wine ~ Evan Mitchell and Brain Mitchell
  7. DRINK THIS: Wine Made Simple ~ Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl

I don’t consider that I’m on that automatic “A” list, so just imagine what’s arriving on that list’s doorstep. It’s definitely a heightened season, and there’s still a lot going to print, regardless of social media activity and reading in sound bytes.

Something I’ve always wanted to have is a page solely devoted to the books I’m reading, in the middle of writing, publicizing, traveling, marketing, tasting, blah, blah, blah… all in the name of wine. It’s a lot easier to manage here than it is to try to manage it in my brain, thank you very much.

I also want these book reviews from my experience of reading them to be stored as a resource on wine-blog. As a result, you’ll see that this blog now has a Wine Books section, and I’m delightedly relieved to finally have them all on one page for easy access.

  1. Guys, this is an advertisement that came in as a comment. I thought about sending Closet Systems an Email that would suggest sending me their info, and then I’d blog about it. I decided not to do that, as I don’t want to spend a few hours on a blog posting about their closets, because I have so many Portuguese stories to tell that just can’t wait. If you want to click on this ad link, go for it… otherwise, thanks for stopping by!


    It is important to make sure that wine is stored correctly and you are on the right track here. I have been adding to my wine collection and needed to expand my storage space. Ideally I would love to have a proper wine cellar and will be looking into that later. I found this great company that can customize storage spaces to meet your every need. My living room gets quite a lot of sun so even though storing wine here may look good, it is not the greatest for keeping wine. Closet & Storage Concepts developed a great solution to store my ever expanding wine collection in the pantry. They completely transformed the limited space in my pantry to store all the food stuffs and also the wine. They had many great ideas that you will be able to take advantage of to meet all you storage needs. I recommend you visit their website, at http://www.closetandstorageconcepts.com
