Peter E. May's Book

Postby Jodene Hayward » Sat Jul 29, 2006 12:09 am

A friend gave me a copy of the Magazine Wine Adventure "The Wine Magazine for Women". Lo and Behold as I was reading I came across an article about the book "Marilyn Merlot and the Naked Grape". It goes on to say that the author is Peter E. May the British Wine Enthusiast.
Has anyone read it yet and Peter where can we purchase it here in the States.

Thank you Bob. I think that I was also pleased to see the "plug" for Peter's book in the magazine that was just given to me. When I saw it I told my friend that I knew who this man was. Over the last almost 7 years Peter has helped me alot and even with my Daughter and SIL's recent move to England.

By the way Peter thank you again.

Thanks for the kind words, Jodene

You can get my book from any book store in the USA; if they don't have it in stock it is available through their ordering system. It is published by a US publisher, Quirk Books of Philadelphia.

All US Borders stores had the book in stock on publication date -- it was on their 'new arrivals' table last month but it may now be located on Shelf Location: Food & Cooking > Food&Cooking > Wine and Spirits
and you can check online whether your local store has any copies left at http://www.bordersstores.com/search/search.jsp?tt=gn

And I understand US Costco's are also stocking it.

And of course you can buy it from Amazon.

The ISBN is 1594740992

Hope you enjoy the book.

Congrats, Peter!

Do you devote much time to Pinotage in the book? I have recently gone on an SA wine spree and will likely be posting more Pinotage TNs and others again.

Peter;

I was able to pick up my copy at Borders yesterday and I am enjoying the information about the different wines. I was also pleased to read Robin's "Forward" too. I will probably take it on to the gym with me to read while I walk or pedal every morning.
