Books for Wine Lovers

If wine lovers aren’t drinking wine, they’re talking about it. And if
no one’s around to listen, they’re quite content to read about it, so
they’ll have something new to talk about the next time someone is
around. This year’s holiday crop of wine books includes Been Doon So Long,
which bears the subtitle, “A Randall Grahm Vinthology.” If you’re a fan
of Bonny Doon or Grahm’s esoteric and esoliterate newsletters, this
book is for you.

Check out my mini-reviews of Grahm’s book, plus the new Concise World Atlas of WIne by Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson and Jonathan Nossiter’s Liquid Memory, in today’s Washington Post, along with my recommendations for some budget-consicious bubbles for your holiday festivities.

And in case you missed it a few months ago, here’s my interview with Randall Grahm about his book.

    some wonderful insights on wine. Take a look at

  3. Dave,
    Thanks much for the book reviews on 12/16. I just gave myself a
    Christmas present with the purchase of Angels, Thieves and Winemakers.
    That book was published just a year ago but it now is selling used on
    Amazon for…get this…one cent!
    Talk about a deal. Gotta go…I’m now looking for a one cent bottle of
    decent wine.
