Last month I met with Leslie Palmer, co-owner of Thirst Wine Bar & Bistro, to talk about starting a book club at her wine bar. Her idea is to get a group of women together to read and discuss books with a wine connection, and drink wine selected to “match” the book. Books, wine, food, and interesting women – what better combination could there be?!
I’m very excited about the idea, and have been scouring book reviews for interesting and new books that have some wine connection. I’ve found a few promising memoirs, a non-fiction book about nuns and priests making wine, a few mysteries, and a few books about food and wine. I look forward to our first book club meeting this summer!
