July 2014 Reading & Tasting


On July 1st, Friendship by Emily Gould comes out. I selected this book because it focuses on what happens to friendships as you reach your 30's-- something that a lot of us can relate to, and a topic that goes undiscussed. The story follows two friends, Bev & Amy, and I think it will make excellent summer reading. 


We'll be pairing this summery book with one of my favorite summer wines-- Riesling. I think Riesling can get a bad rap because there are a lot of bad overly sweet, syrupy rieslings out there. But when you find a drier one-- it's the perfect balance of sweet and crisp-- totally refreshing.
