After New York City, Book & Wine Club expanded to Toronto-- our very first expansion. So this month, I'm excited that our Toronto leader, Tina Barbieri, selected July's read. We will be reading We Came Here to Forget by Andrea Dunlop, which releases July 2, 2019. The story follows Katie, a competitive skier, who discovers a terrifying secret about her sister that could ruin her career, friendships and family. She flees to Argentina to start over, creating a new life in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires. This book is the ultimate summer vacation read.
Because much of our book takes place in Argentina, I think it's only fitting that we drink Argentinian whites. While the country is best known for their big reds like Malbec, we're going to focus on white grapes like Torrontés, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier. Argentinian whites tend to be more floral with hints of spice. The Viognier I selected is slightly spicy, but full of peach and apricot flavors.
