Hi Natalie,

Are you an audio or visual person?

I listen to books rather than read the physical artifacts, so I'm recording the audiobook version of my first book Red, White and Drunk All Over.

I'm more than half way through, and it's bringing back memories of all the crazy things I did to write the book, from working as a sommelier in a 5-diamond restaurant to helping pick grapes at harvest in California.

I can't wait until it's on Amazon/Audible ... I'm hoping in late November.

Meanwhile, here are wines that pair well with both physical and audiobooks:

BC Stores (stock), Alberta, LCBO (stock), SAQ (stock), NB, NS, Canada.

You can change which updates you receive from me.



P.S. How does acidity help wine? How do you know if it's balanced?

You'll find out how in my free online wine video class ;)
