August 2015 Reading & Tasting



The summer is winding down, and I've selected a book that comes out this Tuesday-- Woman With a Secret by Sophie Hannah. From what I've heard so far, it's supposed to be one of those can't-put-it-down suspenseful thrillers. I feel like we need one of those right now. 


Let's pair that with a wine region we haven't gotten to yet, South African wines. I find that most of the region's wines taste of very ripe fruit, because of the warm temps down there, and sometimes a little earthy. Some of the varieties you'll probably see: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Syrah, and Pinot Noir.
