#GratefulReads This was a really interesting #nonfiction book about Rudy Kurniawan and his forgery of rare and vintage wines.

A woman returns to the family vineyard in France while she studies for her Master of Wine certification and uncovers long held family secrets as well as some amazing wine history. Two of he three plot lines are quite compelling and while the third fades in and out, the book over all was a good read.

United States, 1919 - the Prohibition era began, making the selling and consumption of alcoholic beverages illegal. This was also the beginning of a good year for grape harvesting and winemaking in California‘s Napa Valley. This nonfiction accounts looks at the lengths these wine producers went in order to make their products. On my #tbr list & selected for today as one of the few books I have with ran in the title! #IRan #RedRoseSeptember

A riveting historical fiction book that made me learn new things about the WW2 era while also entertaining me. The epistolary 1940‘s storyline was intense and emotional. The present-day storyline had some mystery as Kate, with family and friends, worked to learn more info about a just-found secret stash of rare wine in the basement and a journal written by a previously-unknown aunt. I could taste and smell all of the French cuisine!! So fantastic.

This isn't a bad book, but at halfway I just couldn't get into it. It may be a mood thing, I picked it up because I was desperate for something to fill #goodreadssummerreading cat "a genre you've never read before," which was nearly impossible for me but I don't think I've read a "wine" book. But this is also very much a book about rich people problems in an industry built on racism/slavery (which the author recognizes) so I don't really care...

WhatWouldJaneDo @Leftcoastzen I'm still considering gifting it to the wine people in my life, but I just didn't get into the topic! Some bits interested me more than others but at 50% I just didn't want to pick it up anymore and I'm trying to be better about DNFing stuff if it's not for me. Too many other books to read! 3mo
Leftcoastzen Yep! Life is too short to read books you‘re not getting into, a better book awaits! 3mo

Updates to my #nonfiction2019 #BINGO finished "Becoming" for something with politics, currently listening to "The River of Doubt" about Theodore Roosevelt's expedition to map an unknown river in the Amazon for something with history, and the tagged book for something with law or medicine - it involves an arson case and the following investigation.
Any recs I can use for the "something you saw on Litsy" category, Littens?

Megabooks And this is my fav memoir 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Megabooks thanks! I'll check both of them out! 3mo
