As you read wine writer Alice Feiring’s new book of autobiographical essays, “To Fall in Love, Drink This,” you’ll discover her unusual taste buds. She leads you through the Jura in France and Moravia in the Czech Republic; shows a preference for Northern Rhones such as Crozes-Hermitage over Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the “most beautiful” Rhone in the south; and may be dismissive of entire regions and popular brands, such as the orange-labeled champagne. Ms. Feiring is also a natural wine connoisseur who is easily tempted by oxidative wines. The essays cover her childhood, adventures, setbacks and the evolution of her career. “To Fall in Love” has as much to do with wine as it does with her rocky romances. Finish every drop.
“To Fall in Love, Drink This: A Wine Writer’s Memoir” by Alice Feiring (Scribner, $17 paperback).
