A Moveable Thirst

The entertaining story of two wine enthusiasts on a quest to visit every Napa Valley wine tasting room in a year.
Hank Beal is a wine pro, the executive wine buyer at an upscale supermarket chain. Rick Kushman is an ordinary joe, a guy who enjoys wine but doesn't know a lot about it. Together, Hank and Rick set out to visit all 141 public tasting rooms in Napa during the course of a year. The result is A Moveable Thirst, an engaging, often hilarious book that's one part Sideways, one part Frommer's.

The first part recounts their uproarious adventures on the road as Rick learns to sniff and spit like a true oenophile (but never stops asking stupid questions).

The second part offers the most complete and detailed guide ever published to Napa's wine rooms. For wine lovers and the more than 5 million people who visit Napa every year, A Moveable Thirst is a great read and an indispensable guide. Paperback, 326 pages.
