In Search of the Perfect Pinot G! Australia's Mornington Peninsula (William Maltese's Wine Taster's Diary #2)

In Search of the Perfect Pinot G! Australia's Mornington Peninsula (William Maltese's Wine Taster's Diary #2) - William Maltese, A.B. Gayle Researching this was fun. Check out photos on my website and on my Facebook page. It chronicles our visit to twelve wineries in the Mornington Peninsula area searching for the Perfect Pinot G.For those not into wine, there is some confusion about the difference (if any) between Pinot gris and Pinot grigios. This book explores that difference.Along the way, we learnt a lot about wine and wine making and met stacks of great, friendly people.Writing the book was a lot harder than writing romance novels. Facts had to be checked and re-checked, information had to be made interesting.I didn't want to write a guide book style wine book. This is really a search in which we were led from place to place by people keen to impart their knowledge and give a real taste of what went into making a good wine.Tacked onto the end are recipes from a four course banquet we held at which guests sampled a few of the wines and gave their verdict.Now to visit some other Pinot G areas. Burgundy? Italy? Hmm, just got to sell a few copies of this one first!
