With weather averaging in the 70s in Northern California, our summers begin a bit ahead of other areas, in terms of getting outside, having weekends where we leave wine country to the tourists, and find quiet moments to get back to slower times on longer days.

Also, I’m still rebuilding my life from our house flood. All books were hauled out, but many are still in the garage and I’m slowly bringing them out and seeing them again.

I’ve enjoyed these wine books over the years, as well as some wonderful food books, too. Perhaps you have a wine book library, because you also love wine books. Maybe you can discover a new one here. Enjoy!
