I’m now officially an “international wine expert”. That’s what it says on the cover of Tara Devon O’Leary’s new book, “Every wine tells a Story”. Well, it doesn’t name me directly on the cover but I was one of the contributors for Tara’s book and I’m very excited to see my name in a book ( and no, my high school yearbook, doesn’t count).
When Tara asked me to write a short post about my favourite wine experience of the year, I wasn’t really sure how to go about it. I get to do so many fun things with and around wine that it was hard for me to pin down a ‘favourite experience’ but try I did and came up with the video that Eat Like a Girl and I made last year. You know, the one where I’m dressed up as a gorilla.
Tara got 28 other wine pros, not only based in London but also from around the world. She has everyone from Steven Spurrier, renowned wine consultant and write to Assaf Dudai, who writes for the latest I-Phone wine app, Haidu to contribute their stories. It was fun to read about everyone’s vinous adventures and occasional mishaps. Whether it was red wine or white wine, sparkling or sweet, practically every wine style you can think of is in there.
