An unquenchable thirst for wine and reading

Natalie Maclean's new book
Happy Hallowe'en everyone! My treat today was the much anticipated arrival of Natalie Maclean's new book Unquenchable: A Tipsy Quest for the World's Best Bargain Wines. I can't wait to read this. I just loved her first book Red, White and Drunk All Over. Given to me for my birthday a few years ago, I couldn't put it down! Red, White and Drunk All Over was the only wine book ever to land on the national bestseller list. The Globe & Mail also named it one of the best books of the year. As a certified sommelier and wine critic, Natalie's passion for wine allows her to travel the world for those great anecdotes and stories. Her writing makes learning about wine that much more entertaining.  I'm sure I'll be laughing my cork off (haha, get it?!) while I read Unquenchable.

This is a great review that gives you an idea of what the book is about:

"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
