A crowd celebrated the publication of Celebrity Vineyards by Nick Wise (Welcome Books) with a gala wine tasting of several wines featured in the book at the utterly glorious Bowery Hotel in NYC. Pictured here during a lively discussion of winemaking are author Nick Wise, book editor Linda Sunshine, and vintners Russ Weis from Silverado Wines, Robert Kamen from Kamen Wines and Natalie Oliveros from La Florita whose wines were being poured. Other wines featured at the event were Charlie Palmer’s Charlie Clay Pinot Noir, Dick Vermeil’s Frediani Vineyard OnThEdge Charbono and Jarno Trulli’s Podere Castoroni.
We thought the Charlie Clay Wine 2011 Pinot Noir and the Silverado Vineyards 2009 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon were highlights.
About the book:
Authors Nick Wise and editor Linda Sunshine travel the US and Europe to profile and photograph world-famous vineyards, their famous owners, and their famous wines.
From the hills of Napa to the mountain slopes of Tuscany, author Nick Wise went in search of great wine and famous people who are also winemakers. His astonishing trip, the wines he tasted and the incredible people he met are recounted in loving and often humorous detail in this fully illustrated and eminently readable new book.
