Description

After three years of sipping, spitting, and slogging her way through bushy vine leaves and cellar cobwebs, award-winning writer Natalie MacLean takes listeners behind the scenes of the international wine world, exploring its history, visiting its most evocative places, and meeting some of its most charismatic personalities.  In Red, White, and Drunk All Over, Natalie travels to the ancient vineyards of Burgundy to uncover the secrets of the pinot noir, the "heartbreak grape" from which some of the most coveted and expensive wines in the world are made. She visits the labyrinthine cellars of Champagne to examine the myths and the mystique of luxury bubbly and the grandes dames who made it the drink of celebration the world over. She pulls on sturdy boots to help with the harvest at the vineyards of iconoclastic Californian winemaker Randall Grahm and goes undercover as sommelier for a night in a five-star restaurant with a wine list the thickness of a phone book. She looks at the influence of powerful critics, notably Robert Parker and Jancis Robinson, invites listeners into her dining room for an informal wine tasting, and compares collecting notes at a bacchanalian dinner with novelist Jay McInerney.  As funny and engaging as she is knowledgeable, Natalie has an unconventional wit, curiosity, and obsession with all things related to wine that make for a tour both amusing and informative, from grape to bottle to glass.

Customer Reviews

Loved it!

Before I listened to Natalie's book, I was never sure how to pick a wine in the liquor store. I felt overwhelmed with all those bottles. But she makes wine so much fun with hilarious stories and weird winemakers. I love, love, love that she's reading her own book - she has a great voice ... I feel like I'm right there with her as she takes me around the world on the best wine trip ever! Now I just march into the liquor store, and grab a bottle off the shelf ... and it's good stuff!

Easy and Approachable

Natalie puts the fun in fundamentals as she takes us through an - often needlessly complicated - tour of the wine world with Red, White, and Drunk All Over. Her prose draws you in, and it is easy to forget you are learning about this fascinating topic, her style is so smooth and approachable.
A must read for any and all wine lovers, from just starting to explore, to seasonned sommeliers.
9.5/10
