GIVEAWAY: Corked, A Memoir by Kathryn Borel


Bookmark and Share

I have an extra copy of
Corked: A Memoir by Kathryn Borel to give away. Travel with the author and her outrageous father through the wine vineyards of southern France.

"Corked is a fevered road trip that takes us deep into the heat of family mystery, emotional thirst, and, in luscious counterpoint, the vineyards of southern France. Kathryn Borel is a caustically witty companion, who writes with unsentimental, unsparing insight bout the distant, inscrutable father traveling beside her." - Leanne Shapton, author of Was She Pretty?

"A funny, quirky, bitersweet memoir full of wry wisdom on the subjects of wine, grief, memory, France, and family." - Jay McInerney, author of A Hedonist in the Cellar.

To enter the giveaway for this hardcover book, published 2009 by the Hachette Book Group:  1) leave a comment telling me briefly about a favorite wine, and leave your email address. 2) For an extra point, become a follower or let me know if you already follow.

U.S. addresses only, and no P.O. boxes, please. The giveaway contest runs through March 4; the winner will be notified by email and must reply by March 6. A new winner will be chosen after then.

Please enter, and good luck!

UPDATE: The winner chosen by Randomizer is Rose City Reader. Congrats!

I love Cavit Pinot Grigio. It's just enough of sweet and tarte. I absolutely love it and it goes great with a Friday night movie :). I am following you now.

I love all reds. And I'm going to France in May, so I'd love to get to read this first :)

I belong to a wine club from Madonna Winery in Sonoma Valley. I love their Gefurtztramiener and Pinot Grigio. They grow their grapes organically which I love.

Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir is my favorite wine. Oregon is famous for its pinots, and DD's is the best of the best. I only wish I could afford to drink it. :)

And, yes, i am a follower.

Pinot Grigio is my wine of choice.

I visited the Loire Valley and it was so beautiful.
