A hilarious and perceptive look at the newest superstar wine region, its culture and characters. (Disclaimer: I'm apparently one of them.) Humor IQ required!

I was introduced to this book by a chapter excerpt included in the recent shipment from Epoch Estate Wines (a chapter discussing them). The writing had a unique perspective. I ordered the full Kindle book the same day.

The title of this work gives you a not-so-subtle hint that you're not going to be reading a collection of wine tastings. This is an irreverent collection of verbal snapshots. The focus is Paso Robles, but definitely wide-angle and big depth of field. Sure, you'll read about some of the big names of the AVA. But along the way, you'll also visit Jesse James, William Randolf Hearst, James Dean and other luminaries. You'll hear about walnut and vodka production. You'll meet people that are close to caricatures. Success stories and failures. Plus lots of details on wine soil, harvesting and production.

It's a short book; I read it in one day. Over way too soon. Definitely recommended.

One warning: the Kindle edition has way too many digital conversion typos.

Bought for my hubby for Christmas. He liked it and read it in one day. He said I should read it too and it's rare for him to suggest that.
