November 2017 Reading & Tasting



Let's get into Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman, a book about to be made into a motion picture by Reese Witherspoon. The story centers around Eleanor, a socially awkward, offbeat, out of the ordinary heroine with a deadpan and downright weird sense of humor-- a character maybe we can all relate to on some level. The novel has excellent reviews, so I'm excited to dive in! 


We'll pair that with a bit of a broad wine category: full-bodied whites, which is a selection I always try to incorporate into my Thanksgiving dinner wine list. They often have a smooth creaminess and rich flavor notes, think: burnt caramel, hazelnuts, or pie crust. Look for Chardonnay, Viognier, French Burgundy, or anything that's been aged in oak. I love Red Hook Winery's Clone 95 2012 Chardonnay.
