At last a book about wine to drink in one go! Well done, Francesca: your “Vino prêt-à-porter” is fantastic!
Since her first blog GeishaGourmet.com created in 2008, Francesca Negri has gone very far and tasted a lot of wines!
She tells how she enjoyed and shared those wines with her friends. In fact, the book is dedicated to these women: their approach to wine is different from men’s – they use sensitivity, not just didactic, in their descriptions.
One must feel free to express their opinion without feeling inadequate
… one of her best phrases!
Wine is like remembering a sunset, a first kiss and that very special toast!
You will also like the frequent quotes:
One not only drinks the wine,
one smells it, observes it, tastes it,
sips it and – one talks about it.
– by Edward VII (1841 – 1910)
Wine Princess’ pairing
While reading this pleasant and enlightening book, I sipped a Philipponat Reserve Brut – sheer elegance – and a bit of Henriot – fine smoothness… Cheers Geishagourmet, you’re great!
God save Francesca Negri and “Vino prêt-à-porter”!
