Harvests of Joy
Harvests of Joy by Robert Mondavi (Business)
Mondavi wrote about the transition of winemaking in Napa Valley and California through his efforts, beginning in the mid 60s. He had a passion for good European wines and the Italian lifestyle of good food, good wine. That passion, his ideas about how to do business, and the mistakes he made along the way, are all described in the book. -- Added by dabell on 03/17/2015

Summer in a Glass
Summer in a Glass by Evan Dawson (Other Nonfiction)
The book is about winemaking in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Each of thirteen chapters profile a winemaker or individual who was instrumental in the growth and success of the region's wine industry. We have visited the region a few times and like it very much. I enjoyed learning more about wineries we already know as well as some we will make a point to see on our next trip. -- Added by dabell on 03/02/2015

The book is Archer's account of Englishman George Mallory's attempt to be the first man to reach the top of Mt Everest. Archer writes of Mallory's life and sets the stage for the attempted climb in 1924.While not a happy ending, I enjoyed learning about Mallory and what motivated him. -- Added by dabell on 02/16/2015
