October 25 2010 Wine Newsletter


Frost on cars in the morning is proof the season has changed. Most grapes have been harvested and the wines we will be drinking next year are undergoing their transformation in the winery.

Christmas decorations are in the shops and maybe your thoughts are turning to the question of presents to give – or to ask for. Books make great gifts for wine lovers.

There have been a clutch of new wine related books released in time for the few weeks in the year when more books are sold than any other time and over the next few weeks I will be reviewing them on the site.

Posted today is my review of

‘When the Rivers Ran Red: An Amazing Story of Courage and Triumph in America's Wine Country’ By Vivienne Sosnowski
Can you imagine living in a country where you can’t buy a beer or get a glass of wine with your restaurant dinner? That is what Saudi Arabia is like today but that was also the United States for fourteen years from January 16, 1920. The difference between Saudi Arabia and the USA is that while alcohol isn’t part of Muslim culture it most definitely was for millions of Americans who enjoyed wine and beer and also the many that made their living from the business. How Prohibition affected California’s wine making families is at the heart of Vivienne Sosnowski’s book.
