Women for WineSense signing for Conaway’s Nose
New York Times bestselling author James Conaway will sign his latest book, Nose, at the Napa|Sonoma chapter of Women for WineSense at Ram’s Gate Winery in Sonoma Carneros on Thursday, June 27 at 5:30 p.m. The evening will feature an intimate conversation about hot-button issues in American wine today covered in Nose, including ratings, corporate domination, environmental concern and biodynamic farming.
Guests can buy a copy of Nose, along with other Conaway books Napa and The Far Side of Eden, and have a chance to win a copy of Nose, all three titles and gift certificates from Reader’s Books. All proceeds from the raffle will go toward the chapter’s scholarship fund, which benefits enology students at local universities. Sip Ram’s Gate Sparkling Brut and nibble on light hors d’oeuvres prepared by executive chef Jason Rose.
The evening’s events will include a discussion with the author led by me, Paul Franson, and a raffle that also benefits the chapter’s scholarship fund.
James Conaway’s love affair with wine took off when he was a wine columnist for the Washington Post. He has since authored three novels, including the recently released Nose.
He is also the author of nine nonfiction books, including the best-selling, Napa: The Story of an American Eden, and its sequel, The Far Side of Eden: Old Land, New Money and the Battle for Napa Valley.
He is a regular contributor to Smithsonian, National Geographic Traveler and Food & Wine magazines. He will also be the keynote speaker at the 13th annual Wine Bloggers’ Conference in early June.
