Win the autobiography - Corked: A Memoir (CLOSED)

Corked: A Memoir by Kathryn Borel

Meet Kathryn Borel, bon vivant and undutiful daughter. Now meet her father, Philippe, former chef, eccentric genius, and wine aficionado extraordinaire. Kathryn is like her father in every way but one: she's totally ignorant when it comes to wine. And although Philippe has devoted untold parenting hours to delivering impassioned oenological orations, she has managed to remain unenlightened. But after an accident and a death, Kathryn realizes that by shutting herself off to her father's greatest passion, she will never really know him.

I love a good cabernet! The oak-ier, the better!

Of course as far as names of wines go, I think Mad Housewife is hilarious!

I'm embarassed to say my favorite wine is an inexpensive one - but a nice California wine - Livingston Red Rose, which has just a tinge of sweetness that I like - like drinking a strong sangria.

Would love to win this book.

I'm not a big wine drinker so I couldn't even tell you the difference in them. The wine in a box is good enough for me!

I'm just starting to get into Rieslings... not too sweet, not too dry... not too oaky.

I'm not allowed to drink any kind of alcohol because of the medications I am on. Back in the day when I could, I just drank cheap wines like Boones Farm.

I am not really a wine drinker but enjoy a glass of blush on very special occasions. The medications that I take keep me from being able to drink alcoholic beverages.
