New York Times Wine Critic Eric Asimov Coming to RI Dec. 7
Thursday, December 06, 2012
Eric Asimov and Eric Taylor of Bottles Fine Wine have chosen a fascinating selection of wines to be sampled at the event. The Wine Tasting starts at 6pm with the reading, Q&A and book signing stating at 7pm.
How to Love Wine
In ‘How to Love Wine’, Asimov examines why the American wine culture produces such feelings of anxiety and suggests how readers can overcome fears and develop a sense of discovery and wonder as they explore the diversity and complexity of the world of wine. In a direct, down-to-earth manner, Asimov discusses favorite vineyards, wine’s singular personalities, the “tyranny of tasting notes’’—those meaningless, overwritten wine descriptions that often pass for criticism today—and current wine issues. Thought provoking and enjoyable, ‘How to Love Wine’ will help diminish readers’ anxiety, bolster their confidence, and transform them into wine lovers.
This event takes place at Books on the Square 471 Angell Street in Providence. Admission is free but seating is very limited. Please arrive early. Wine provided courtesy of Bottles Fine Wine, 141 Pitman Street, Providence.
