Natalie's new book and ebook:
Unquenchable: A Tipsy Quest for the World's Best Bargain Wines

This book has legs! 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 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

There are very few people in the wine world who I think "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

- Gary Vaynerchuck, author of The Thank-You Economy and host of Wine Library TV

Natalie pulls us along happily into her wide world of wine - you are right there with her at 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.

- Kermit Lynch, author of Adventures on the Wine Route

With full-bodied 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-the buzz that makes wine so wonderful.

- Benjamin Wallace, author of The Billionaire's Vinegar and executive editor of Philadelphia Magazine

If you're looking for unpretentious, forthright wine advice look no further. In Unquenchable, Natalie MacLean travels the globe with a curious palate and a meager pocketbook to search for the world's best wine values. The result is a delightful adventure--part travel story, part wine journal--that will convince even the most cynical wine lover that there are still affordable treasures to be had.

- Dr. Deborah Harkness, author of A Discovery of Witches and blog editor of Good Wine Under $20

Natalie's first book - available in all major book stores and online:

International Booksellers:

TNatalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... Eminently readable - and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

- Rex Pickett, author of Sideways

Red, White and Drunk All Over was a breezy and fun read, but well researched and full of great storytelling. I also like the fact that MacLean is one of the few writers who's not afraid to admit to the alcoholic pleasures of imbibing, as well as the more commonly described sensual joys. It's one of my favourite wine books of the last several years.

- Steven Page, The Wine Spectator

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world - a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

- The Financial Times of London
