Reading Between the Vines: a Sonoma Wine & Book Pairing Adventure featuring New York Times and bestselling authors Karen White, Noelle Salazar, Rebecca Rosenberg, Renee Rosen, Robert Kerbeck, Martha Conway, Eleanor Brown, and Kristin Beck
“Language is wine upon the lips” – Virginia Woolf
Virginia Woolf made the connection between language and wine, so we decided to take a page from her and create an entire Adventures by the Book series devoted to the pairing of wine and books. Voila! Introducing our new Reading Between the Vines series to take place at the estate producer Hook & Ladder Winery in Sonoma County, California!
With the assistance of Melier, we have created for you an entire afternoon filled with sumptuous wines, delicious books, and charcuterie platters galore, all presented under California’s brilliant trademark sunshine. Eight New York Times and bestselling authors – Karen White, Noelle Salazar, Rebecca Rosenberg, Renee Rosen, Robert Kerbeck, Martha Conway, Eleanor Brown, and Kristin Beck – will be on hand to share with you their latest books, all paired with wines and charcuterie spreads hand selected by the folks at Hook & Ladder.
And if you really want to up your experience, and we think Virginia Woolf would have indulged, join us for the pre-event VIP experience, an intimate behind the scenes with the winemaker and the authors in the barrel room, which includes a book of your choice with a paired bottle of wine.
1:30-2:45pm – Your VIP experience will include your choice of one of the eight bottles of wine and paired book to be delivered to you for signing, along with a special reception in the barrel room with the winemaker and the authors. Limited spaces available to allow for a more intimate experience.
