New York Times Wine Critic Eric Asimov Coming to RI Dec. 7

Thursday, December 06, 2012

 

Chief wine critic for The New York Times, Eric Asimov, will be at Books On The Square this Friday for a unique event co-sponsored by Bottles Fine Wine.

On Friday, December 7, at 6pm, the Chief Wine Critic of The New York Times, Eric Asimov, will be visiting Books on the Square on Providence’s East Side for a reading (and wine tasting) of his new book, How to Love Wine, a Memoir and Manifesto. The event is presented by Books on the Square and Bottles Fine Wine with the proceeds from any book and wine sales benefiting Reach out and Read Rhode Island.

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.
