Reflecting on Roc City Uncorked!

It seems that everyone who reads Summer in a Glass connects most intensely to a different winemaker, grower, or even a particular moment in the book.

On Friday, April 8th, the Riverside Convention Center in downtown Rochester attracted nearly 3,000 wine and craft beer fans for Roc City Uncorked. The organizers invited me to have a booth for the book, so Morg and I (along with her lovely friend Laura) hung out for the better part of the evening.

We sold a heck of a lot of books, yes, but more interesting to me was the number of people who stopped by who had already read it. The book had only been out for three days!

I keep returning to that word: Personal. There are personal connections all across the world of wine, and when readers discover a winemaker’s compelling story, they forge their own personal connection. It is fascinating and wonderful and gratifying to watch that plat out.
