I've just finished Virgile's Vineyard, a title from a few years ago, about the Languedoc-Roussillon region and its wines and history. The information in it offset the author's penchant for stereotyping and overselling the quirks of his supporting characters, and it whetted my interest in more of the same. While browsing, I came across Extremely Pale Rosé, which might be subtitled "How a rosé changed my life," as a glass of the pink drink sets the author, Jamie Ivey, off on a search for the palest beverage he can find. Since rosés are becoming trendy, it was cool to discover a useful but easy way to build my knowledge of them. Extremely Pale Rosé was published last year in hardcover; the paperback has just been released. The author also has a blog if you want to taste before you buy.
