“A beautifully written, soulful narrative that goes straight into the heart and soul of the complexities, joys, and wisdom of wine.” –Alice Feiring, To Fall in Love, Drink This, a wine writer’s memoir

“Meg Bernhard’s Wine is a beautiful gem of a book, thankfully free of what we find in so much wine writing. This wine book is anything but typical. Bernhard covers a lot of ground in a short number of pages with her unique mix of memoir, travel writing, natural history, sensory science, and reporting on the social issues surrounding wine. But the beating heart of this book is Bernhard’s experiences working at Spanish wineries and in the vineyards of Castilla-La Mancha and Catalonia, which she memorably brings to life.” — Jason Wilson, author of Godforsaken Grapes and creator of the newsletter “Everyday Drinking”
