Summary Unuenchable

From the author of the bestselling Red White and Drunk All Over this book will amuse and enthrall with its character sketches of obsessive personalities trave. This is a fun fairly lightweight romp through 8 world wine regions and their signature grapes Australian Barossa Valley shiraz German Mosel riesling Niagara pinot noir South African Cape shiraz and pinotage Sicilian Mt Etna nero de avola Argentine Mendoza malbec Portugal s Douro port country and Provence s ros area The object here is to find great typical wines that are mostly budget friendly and which should be available at the LCBO Along the way Nat has encounters that makes one envious meeting usually three vineyard owners in each region and tasting wine and dining homemade meals in their homes The end of each chapter offers further info including links to the recipes she had in each winery suggested food pairings and best valuetop value listings There are some rather jarring errors in the book mainly geographic Some samples Niagara to Whistler BC as 8000 km when it is closer to half that and not as the crow flies but by highway through the US South Africa separated from India by the Pacific Ocean instead of the Indian Ocean Mendoza s highest Uco Valley vineyards at 1000 metres being 13 as high as Everest when it is like 13 of 13 the height A South African winery is spelled two ways on three adjoining pages Nat also seems to melt before many of the winemakers but that is somewhat charming for a woman who has spent so much time in the wine world Overall though it is a great read and you ve gotta love a woman who loves her wine

L to lovely settings mouth watering descriptions of food and wine hidden wine education and neurotic humor Standing firmly against wine snobbery by insisting. She s bright funny sassy and self deprecating Her niche is inexpensive great value wines some of which aren t well known And to top it off she s from my hometown of OttawaThe book is organized by days of the week with one varietal per day except on Sunday when there are two one for brunch and one for dinner MacLean explores the history of the grape its cultivation and various vintners who produce it so the book is a combination travelogue and wine reader Highly recommended
