The Reading List.

The Billionaire’s Vinegar

The funnest, most suspenseful book I’ve read in ages, and the most suspenseful one I’ve ever read about wine. The narrative is rich, and you continuously have to know what happens next.

Judgment of Paris

A must-read. The story behind the Time article that helped legitimize and vitalize California’s wine industry. A lot of great detail on the births of many legendary Napa wineries.

The House of Mondavi

High drama! When Robert Mondavi’s wife gets a luxurious mink coat for a visit to the White House, the expense drives his own brother and mother to banish him from the family business. What’s he do? He starts his own winery. He did pretty well: You’re more likely to covet a bottle of Mondavi Reserve Cabernet than a bottle of Charles Krug “Vintage Selection Cabernet.”

Charles Krug? I am so sher.

  1. ZinfanHubby has had the Judgment of Paris book since I’ve known him. I swear, I’ve been meaning to read it! 😉 Only got about halfway through Vinegar, just never could fully get into it.
