The founder of the Bonny Doon Vineyard has for years written with quirky humor about the wine industry, often with the underlying seriousness of someone who cares passionately and knows a great deal about his subject. Now his essays, poems, lectures, and more are gathered into a single collection - Been Doon So Long
- that?s sure to please lovers of wine and literature. Hilarious literary parodies, satires, song lyrics, and his own unique version of Dante?s Inferno, titled ?Wine Hell? are included, along with snippets of history from the ?Rhone Ranger wine movement? and Bonny Doon?s series of quirky labels. He should be in rare form: he's calling his book tour "the Bataan Death March".
Come hear how he has reduced his production down to a 10th or what it was, turning to the purity of Biodynamic winemaking.
Here's an snippet of this man's great wit: http://www.beendoonsolong.com/2010/03/further-ruminations-on-cigare-the-doon-and-dirty/We'll head over to an inexpensive bistro nearby accompanying our repast with some Bonny Doon vino.
Cost: $12 plus din-din.
