Red, White, and Drunk All Over: A Wine Soaked Journey From Grape to Glass. Hardcover. 2006. Award-winning writer Natalie MacLean sweeps readers behind the scenes of the international wine world, visiting its most evocative places and meeting its most charismatic personalities. Red, White, and Drunk All Over showcases the engaging wit, investigative curiosity, and sharp eye for obsessive passion that has made her free e-newsletter Nat Decants one of the most popular in North America.
Unquenchable: A Tipsy Quest for the World’s Best Bargain Wines. Hardcover. 2011 Written with the trademark wit and verve that has earned MacLean a devoted international following as well as myriad awards for her wine writing, Unquenchable is much more than a shopping list for the thrifty tippler. Packed with colourful stories about the obsessive characters who inhabit the world of wine, the book takes readers on a whirlwind journey to the mountainside vineyards of Germany, the baked red earth of Australia, and the shady verandahs of Niagara–as well as to gorgeous, offbeat locations in southern Italy, the Mediterranean, Argentina, Chile and South Africa–all in search of the best value bottles the world has to offer. Inevitably, she discovers some truly awful wines along the way, but that just gives her an opportunity to provide readers with practical advice about wine faults to be wary of, as well as insights into the shortcuts some producers take.
