Next take a look at this great rundown on the best wine books of the season, which I'm happy to say includes A Man and His Mountain. Reviewer Virginie Boone calls it "the kind of story movie directors covet. It starts with a 'street-smart farm boy' buying his first vineyard and ends with a self-made billionaire owning some 14,000 acres of vineyard land and the most popular Chardonnay brand in the world."
P.S. Join me Saturday December 7 at 3 p.m. at Apostrophe Books in Long Beach for a book chat, signing and a glass of wine.
