About The Book
Named a Best Wine Book of 2022 by The New York Times, Forbes, and The Washington Post
From veteran wine writer and James Beard Award winner Alice Feiring, an insightful and entertaining memoir of wine, love, heartbreak, and the never-ending process of coming-of-age.
Alice Feiring is a special sort of wine writer—the kind who dares to disagree with wine “experts”, and who believes wholeheartedly that the best wine writing is about life.
To Fall in Love, Drink This is both her love letter to wine and a lifelong coming-of-age story. In a series of candid, wise, and humorous personal essays, Feiring tells the story of her parents’ divorce, her first big wine assignment, the end of an eleven-year relationship, the death of her father, a near-fatal brush with a serial killer, pandemic lockdown, and more—and suffuses each with love, romance, pain, joy, and wine. Each essay is “accompanied” by a no-nonsense wine take-away designed to answer the questions everyday wine lovers have about wine—age, price, grapes, vineyards, and vintners.
This frank, charismatic work is a refreshingly grounded addition to the genre of wine-writing. Feiring has crafted a timeless, positively unpretentious memoir that will appeal to everyone who has ever enjoyed a glass of wine.

Raves and Reviews
"Narrator Gabra Zackman has that rare ability to get inside the souls of her authors. Here she reads Feiring’s memoir with an understanding of its confessional dips into the past and its compelling journeys into the wine world of the present. Her pauses matter, she chats when needed, and her pacing is spot-on. Zackman’s French and Italian are musical. The audiobook is an appreciation of how a woman with 12 years of a Yeshiva religious education overcame a stressful childhood and unfulfilling romances to become one of the most important wine writers of her time. The merging of this talented narrator with the irreverent but essential wine writer creates a remarkable listening experience."
