My friend and author, Ann Mah has a new book coming out this year. “The Lost Vintage” tells the story of Kate, a young sommelier who is trying in vain to pass the notoriously difficult Master of Wine exam. She travels to her family’s ancestral vineyard in Burgundy where she discovers a secret cellar and becomes tangled in a web of secrets hidden since the dark days of World War II. As the line between resistance and collaboration blurs, Kate is driven to answer two crucial questions: Who, exactly, did her family aid during the difficult years of the war? And what happened to six valuable bottles of wine that seem to be missing from the cellar’s collection?  

There is a giveaway on GoodReads for 50 free copies of the book. You can enter here.

  1. As usual, I love your post. You and my daughter, Meghann, will both benefit from the Parisian habit of adapting the art of doing nothing. It will trigger those alpha brain waves and foster relaxation and creativity. It has been the best part of my retirement. Bonsoir! Donna Dowd

    • Hello Donna!
      Thank you so much. I am so happy you are finding relaxation and creativity with retirement. You deserve all the best.
      I was so happy to see Meghann tonight. I hope I see you again soon too!
