Praise

“If you haven’t lived with reading Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl every week, you have missed the reason why we humans have opposing thumbs. They’re there so you can keep turning her pages. With Dara doing a wine book, the days are over of buying bottles because the labels match your home team colors. Be bamboozled and intimidated no more. Dara is about to give you the best and easiest kind of wine smarts, and gift you a good read in the bargain.” —Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of The Splendid Table®, public radio’s food show from American Public Media (NPR)

“Most wine books have left me feeling like I am bringing a knife to a swordfight, completely underprepared. Not this one. Drink This is what I’ve been waiting for. Finally, a must-have book for the vino-challenged! For over a decade I have relied on Dara Grumdahl’s insight and common sense wisdom regarding all matters related to food and wine, and now luckily, so can everyone else with this helpful, funny and accessible guide to determining your favorite wines.” —Andrew Zimmern

“Dara Grumdahl is right about absolutely everything. If she calls me up at four in the morning, says ‘Get dressed, get some money—and a gun—you’ll need it where we’re eating,’ I don’t ask any questions. I just go.” —Anthony Bourdain

“Dara Moskowitz’s writing comes across immediately; it also gets under your skin. Whether writing about restaurants, food, wine, travel, art, literature, music, architecture—or all of those things in a single piece—she is always writing about a milieu, the manners, expectations, fears, and desires of a particular place and time. She is alluring and instructive; as much as Pauline Kael or Lester Bangs. Her work shows what a critic can do and what she can be.” —Greil Marcus

“Straight-forward, clearly organized and ambitiously witty, [Drink This]  makes reading about wine fundamentals interesting again. Includes many “conversations” with bigwigs in the industry, provocative sidebars, and a clever “what’s to love/hate” approach to major grapes. —Epicurious.com
