From the author of the bestselling Red, White and Drunk All Over, this book will amuse and enthrall with its character sketches of obsessive personalities, travel to lovely settings, mouth-watering descriptions, of food and wine, "hidden" wine education and neurotic humor. Standing firmly against wine snobbery by insisting that good wine doesn't have to be expensive, award-winning wine writer Natalie MacLean travels the globe on an uncompromising quest to find fabulous wine bargains.

“There are very few people in the wine world that I think "get it" and Natalie is one of those people that brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.”
—Gary Vaynerchuck, author of The Thank-You Economy and host of WineLibraryTV
“With fully extracted prose that lingers on the palate, Natalie MacLean has wisely headed off the beaten path to get at the essence of wine. As she probes the elusive intersection of quality and value, we are lucky sidekicks on her well-observed journey through the landscapes, people, stories, and—let's just say it—buzzes that make wine so wonderful.”
—Benjamin Wallace, author of the The Billionaire's Vinegar
“Natalie pulls us along happily into her wide world of wine -- you are right there with her at table or in an underground cellar. The conversations are lively and the wine flows. And when a winemaker pours a glass for her, you might look around wondering, "Where's mine?" She made me itchy to get on a plane and hit the wine route myself.”
—Kermit Lynch, author of Adventures Along the Wine Route
