9780399537806: Unquenchable!: A Tipsy Quest for the World's Best Bargain Wines

With her signature engaging style, Natalie MacLean takes you on a whirlwind journey through the world of wine, searching for great taste at a low cost. By turns confessional, with guilty admissions from a penny-pincher who loves simple pleasures, and spirited, Unquenchable is informed by MacLean's decade-long career as an award-winning wine writer. MacLean recounts her adventure with the most passionate personalities in some of the most gorgeous, off-beat places in the world, from the crazed vintner who explains his wine philosophy while speeding down the Autobahn to the Sicilian winemakers you don't want to disappoint with your tasting notes. Yet there's plenty to take away, from her inspired recommendations for food pairings to favorite value wines and wineries, plus many pointers that will enhance your own drinking pleasure.

Críticas:

"I learned so much from Natalie MacLean's humorous, literate, lively adventures in search of great buys in wine. Fun to read, her book introduces you to many winemakers who could be in novels, to out-of- the-way places you'll want to add to your travel list, and, most of all, to an appreciation of vino as integral to the joy of living. I'm restocking my racks with her smart suggestions."
-Frances Mayes, author of "Under the Tuscan Sun"

"With fully extracted prose that lingers on the palate, Natalie MacLean has wisely headed off the beaten path to get at the essence of wine. As she probes the elusive intersection of quality and value, we are lucky sidekicks on her well-observed journey through the landscapes, people, stories, and-let's just say it-buzzes that make wine so wonderful."
-Benjamin Wallace, author of "The Billionaire's Vinegar"

"Natalie pulls us along happily into her wide world of wine-you are right there with her at the table or in an underground cellar.

"Natalie pulls us along happily into her wide world of wine-you are right there with her at the table or in an underground cellar. The conversations are lively and the wine flows. And when a winemaker pours a glass for her, you might look around wondering, ''Where''s mine?'' She made me itchy to get on a plane and hit the wine route myself."
