Nick Wise’s acclaimed wine and travel book "Celebrity Vineyards: from Napa to Tuscany in Search of Great Wine
" is released in the UK today.
From the hills of Napa to the mountain slopes of Tuscany, author Nick Wise went in search of great wine and famous people who are also winemakers. His astonishing trip, the wines he tasted and the incredible people he met are recounted in loving and often humorous detail in this fully illustrated and eminently readable new book. The book features such celebrity winemakers as screenwriter Robert Kamen, filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, the Walt Disney family, actor Dan Aykroyd, racecar driver Jarno Trulli, world-renowned composer Ludovico Einaudi, Antonio Banderas and more, topped by a chapter on America's very first vintner, Thomas Jefferson, whose Monticello estate is still producing wine from the grapes that the Third President of America planted more than 200 years ago.
In celebration of the book’s official UK launch, a special wine tasting evening will take place at the exclusive Groucho Club in Soho, London on Friday June 14th.
Featuring six unique and distinct wines to explore and enjoy, the evening will be an exquisite soiree featuring book signings and the chance to meet the author over a glass or game of pool.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase on the night, with author Nick Wise on hand to personally sign books.
In anticipation for the launch, the book’s UK publishers Omnibus Press said:
