Podcast #46 – Wine Books

“I read about the evils of drinking, so I gave up reading.” – Henny Youngman

And so we approach the very bulky topic of wine literature. There are a lot of books out there about wine. Some of them are even good. Some read like dictionaries while others have naratives that read like a mystery novel. Either way, there’s something for everyone out there when the mind’s thirst is not satiated solely by inbibing.

There’s a lot of books listed in this podcast, including two books that Amber and I quote at length. Here are links to some of the authors that we made a fuss about in this podcast:

Jeannette MontgomeryOkanagan Writing Services

Rhys Pender, MV – WinePlus

John Schreiner (some of his many books)

Julianna Hayes

Anthony Gismondi (on Twitter)

Tony Aspler

Amber’s reading comes from the book “Grapes and Wines” by Oz Clarke  

Luke’s reading comes from the book “Between the Wines” by Terry Thiese

Also in this podcast…

We’re giving away the 3rd and final copy of the “Wineries of the Okanagan” map by Environ Geomatics. Listen carefully for the next question that will test your knowledge of wine country and send us an email if you think you know the answer.

Congratulations to Kathy Hamilton from Edmonton, Alberta for correctly answering last week’s question. The correct answer was Young and Wyse Estate Winery, the most southern winery in the Okanagan Valley, which is located mere steps from the Canada/USA border crossing.
