Unquenchable

Anchor Canada | October 23, 2012 | 384 pages

Written with the trademark wit and verve that has earned MacLean a devoted international following as well as myriad awards for her wine writing,Unquenchableis much more than a shopping list for the thrifty tippler. Packed with colourful stories about the obsessive characters who inhabit the world of wine, the book takes readers on a whirlwind journey to the mountainside vineyards of Germany, the baked red earth of Australia, and the shady verandahs of Niagara--as well as to gorgeous, offbeat locations in southern Italy, the Mediterranean, Argentina, Chile and South Africa--all in search of the best value bottles the world has to offer. Inevitably, she discovers some truly awful wines along the way, but that just gives her an opportunity to provide readers with practical advice about wine faults to be wary of, as well as insights into the shortcuts some producers take. Unquenchableis a book both wine novices and experts will love.
