If you want some ideas for a few good wine books to read (or give as gifts, yeah!), check out Eric Asimov’s blog, The Pour, from November 17, 2009.  I have his blog saved to my favorites, though I seldom remember to read it.  But I do always make sure to read the online version of the Wednesday New York Times Dining and Wine section, in which I found the link to Asimov’s blog article, “An Invitation to Read, Sniff and Taste.”  In it he reviews six new wine books, any of which would make a nice gift for the wine geek in your life.  For example, anyone reading this (please, anyone), who wanted to know a great gift for this wine geek, would want to consider Randall Grahm’s (proprietor of Bonny Doon Vineyard) book, Been Doon So Long, or, The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Wine Book, by Harry Karis.  I’m just sayin.’

    I’m embarrassed to admit that the only wine-related book I have is Wine for Dummies (and that was a gift). Maybe it’s time to expand… I’d love to get a cool coffee table book with pictures of vineyards, wineries, and maybe some information on the wine-making process. I’ll have to see if there’s anything like that out there.
