Getting ready for… “Summer in a Glass — The Coming of Age of Winemaking in the Finger Lakes”

Summmer-in-a-Glass-PB-finalI really don’t sell anything on this blog.  Just not my style.  I will talk you into buying local wine and maybe some vineyard events.  However, it ends there.  Except for today.  I am not a sales person, but today, I really think you should buy this book from Evan Dawson.

I know Evan from The New York Cork Report.  I met him at last years TasteCamp in the Finger Lakes.  Evan takes being a wine enthusiast to another level, that level is this book. “Summer in a Glass – the Coming of Age of Winemaking in the Finger Lakes.”

If you have never been to the Finger Lakes wine region, you should go.  If you have, then this book will be a reminder of the region.  If you have ever met any of the people who make up the region, this book will help you remember those meetings.  If you never met those people, no problem, Evan will introduce you to them.  If you have never been to the Finger Lakes, than this book will make you want to go.

Yesterday on Facebook I asked you 3 questions, and if you answer yes to any one of them, you should buy this book.  Here are those questions again:

  • Do you like wine?
  • Do you like to read?
  • Do you like to save 50%?

Right now, Barnes and Noble is selling this book for 50% off cover price.  For less than $10, you can pre-order this book which is set to be released on April 5th. Go here to get this great discount on this book.

And if you have any doubts about this book, read this excerpt from the book.

And if you are still not convinced, watch the trailer…

I knew the video would make you buy the book.

I have yet to read the book, but based on the trailer, the excerpt from the book and the reviews I read on Evan Dawson Writes, this book not just about wine or the Finger Lakes or about wine making.  In my opinion, it is about what goes into every single bottle of wine, the love, the passion, the pain, and the rewards of those people who make the wine we love; An element of wine enjoyment sometimes we take for granted.
