This book is the perfect present for the holiday season (or any other special occasion). For those not knowing what to give as a gift, this little tome will definitely please male and female friends and relatives with its inspirational true stories of wine and how wine has brought people together in fellowship and family. First off, this book looks a bit different from the usual Chicken Soup tome - the cover is about an inch smaller in size and the inside pages are printed on soft white paper (instead of the usual bright white) which makes reading easy on the eyes. The cover is shaded with a rosy pink, reminiscent of rose wine. It's a pleasure to hold this book in my hands. And it's an even greater pleasure to relax with this book for an invigorating spell of reading enjoyment. I always feel better after leafing through a Chicken Soup book, and this one in particular. I thrive on "feel good" stories. I appreciate the life lessons that the authors provide, and I get a kick out of seeing how they incorporate those lessons with the joy of wine. Pass the cheese tray, friends, and relax with a glass of rose or white wine - and this book.

I am not one for short stories, but I loved "Wine Lovers Soul". In fact, I bought one for my friend's birthday. It was the perfect gift to give to a friend, whom you have enjoyed wine with.

Each story is touching or funny in one way or another, whether it is the couple of many years sharing a quiet moment at home with a good wine, or a daughter making a fine dinner for her family using her father's oldest reserve wine by accident. Once you finish the book, it is easy to see that the love of wine is about tradition, celebration, love of friends and family and much more.

Not only did I love the short stories, but I also appreciated the extra little tidbits and facts that are given as a side note in each chapter. As well as, the suggestions at the end of different chapters on wines to try.

I read this book with a smile on my lips and a tear in my eye. Each story has an aroma all its own: some dark, some sweet, some spicy. Inhaling them carried me back to my own red and white moments when I was happier than I've ever been and sadder than I ever want to be again, thus the smiles and tears. Besides the rousing good stories, there's great information about wine scattered through out its pages. Great balance and complexity that never disappoints. This book definitely has legs.

This is a fun book on wine that was so nostalgic for me. While living in San Francisco for seven years, I learned a lot about wine and took many day trips to Napa and Sonoma. Now that I live in the Arizona desert, several stories in this book took me back to those fun experiences! A great book for anyone who enjoys wine and wine tasting.

This book is a must read for all wine lovers and those on the threshold of discovery. It is filled with delightfully entertaining stories about family, friends and the fruit of the vine, delectable pairings, interesting facts, definitions and quotes. My story is on page 100. "Passing the Cork" It is as much fun to read as it was to write. My toast to you--May joy overflow in your life.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to enjoy and share! From one who is just beginning to explore the world of wines to a celebrated expert, everyone will enjoy the personal stories, the history of wine making, vinification facts, ecology of the grape, wine selection suggestions, the wine glossary, noted wine quotes, and more. PLUS the publisher donates five cents for every book sold, up to one million dollars to Mercy Corps, an organization that exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities.

I'm proud to be an author in such a "giving" book. My story is on page 30 and is outlined as follows:

Story Title: The Makings of a Sommelier
Synopsis: New to the world of wine, Pam's efforts not to stand out as the wine-rookie she really is, produced many opportunities for her to call on her inner actress, including the need to suppress internal panic, that in the end, often makes for an outstanding performance. Anyone who has ever found themselves among wine aficionados, will identify and find pleasure in this humorous look a the serious world of wine tasting. The wine may not have received an award, but Pam most certainly deserves one.

"Wine not" give this book along with a bottle of the fruit of the vine this year? (Then stick around and wait for them to share...)
