A page from "The Wine Questionnaire" by Jay McInerney
Are you really what you drink? A new book, The Wine Questionnaire, taps the minds of wine connoisseurs and wine lovers alike. In the style of a Proust questionnaire, Sofia Coppola, Danny Meyer, Mario Batali, Daniel Boulud, and others reveal their first wine memories, choice aperitifs, favorite pairings, preferred vineyards, and more. It’s a charming collection of personal questionnaires that is sure to delight any wine enthusiast.
In an introduction by Jay McInerney, author and wine columnist for The Wall Street Journal, he writes, “Dinking wine, it seems to me, is a way of bookmarking our memories. It’s a process of self-discovery […]” Wine is more than just a dinner pairing, it can be a very telling indication of who you are and where you’ve been.
Are you a Bordeaux or a Burgundy drinker? If you could have one wine for the rest of your life, what would it be? How about your first wine memory? “The Wine Questionnaire” allows you to answer these questions yourself and take a peek at the wine musings of some of your favorite wine aficionados.
Share your wine memories with fellow oenophiles… over a glass of wine, of course! Cheers!
“The Wine Questionnaire” will be available to purchase February 21, 2012.
