::Sniff, sniff:: Summer vacation is just about over. Harvests are beginning. My son starts 1st grade next week. And it’s Labor Day weekend. Cooler, chillier weather will be making its way to upstate New York. In fact, it has already — it’s been dipping down into the 40s at night. Fall is my favorite season. It brings stunning foliage, apple picking, reasons to wear stripey socks and wooly sweaters, my birthday, Halloween, and Thankgiving. All good things Fall is also the perfect time to pour a glass of wine and curl up with a good book so I thought it would be fun to give away a copy of Passion on the Vine by Sergio Esposito. The book is a memoir of Mr. Esposito’s childhood in Italy and his journey to America. Mr. Esposito founded Italian Wine Merchants in New York City in 1999 along with Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.
The book is full of wonderful anecdotes, but it is also full of great information on Italian wine, food, and culture. It’s a book that I enjoyed and I think that anyone who is interested in wine — especially Italian wine — will enjoy as well.
