From veteran wine writer and James Beard Award winner Alice Feiring, an insightful and entertaining memoir of wine, love, heartbreak, and the never-ending process of coming-of-age.

Called everything from the Patti Smith to the Ruth Bader Ginsburg of natural wines, Alice Feiring is a special sort of wine writer--the kind who dares to disagree with wine "experts," and who believes wholeheartedly that the best wine writing is about life.

To Fall in Love, Drink This is both a love letter to wine and a lifelong coming-of-age story. In a series of candid, wise, and humorous personal essays, Feiring serves up a memoir in vignettes. She tells the story of her parents' divorce, her first big wine assignment, the end of an eleven-year relationship, the death of her father, a near-fatal brush with a serial killer, pandemic lockdown, and more--and suffuses each with love, romance, pain, joy, and wine. Each essay is "accompanied" by a no-nonsense wine take-away designed to answer the questions everyday wine lovers have about wine--age, price, grapes, vineyards, and vintners.

This frank, charismatic work is a refreshingly grounded addition to the popular--and notoriously stuffy--genre of wine-writing. Feiring has crafted a timeless, positively unpretentious memoir that will appeal to everyone who has ever enjoyed a glass of wine.
