Editorial Reviews

Review

“Who would have guessed it? The wine world is just as crazy and full of intrigue as the restaurant scene. Uncorked knocks wine off its pedestal and yet elevates it at the same time. I’m more of a beer guy, but after reading Marco Pasanella’s book I suddenly have the urge to build a serious wine cellar. He takes wine out of the hands of oenological snobs—and pulls back the curtain of mystery surrounding the grape’s sublime elixir—and places it into the hands of the common man. This is a surprising, heartfelt, and entertaining book.”
—Steven Dublanica, author of the bestselling Waiter Rant
 
“Facing the East River, not far from the amazing Brooklyn Bridge, is one of New York’s most unique wine stores. Pasanella & Son is the charming and evocative brainchild of Marco Pasanella. Marco is extremely knowledgeable about wines: how they taste, how they are made, and how they are bottled. The story he tells in Uncorked is much more than what wine to pair with what, and everyone interested in enjoying an excellent glass of wine should read his book.”
—Martha Stewart

“In this memoir about family, love, wine, and Italy, Marco shares how he reinvented his life—from designer to wineshop owner—and discovered what’s really important. The book is filled with portraits of the wild and crazy characters you find in the food and wine business. It’s also filled with real wisdom. If you’ve ever thought about changing course and taking a big leap to follow your passion, then Uncorked is a must-read.”
—Rocco DiSpirito, author of Now Eat This!

This is a book that any wine lover should read. The stories of dealing with growers, winemakers, salespeople, employees, customers, bureaucrats and family are insightful, occasionally hilarious, and often heartfelt.” – WINE LINES ONLINE
