Contact Sonia Baron at and 916 825-4952.

Alison Crowe is the featured guest speaker at SHW’s March 19 meeting when she’ll be talking about the joys and hiccups on making Pinot Noir.  In addition to making wine for her partnership and consulting for other wineries, Alison writes a monthly column for WineMaker magazine – she is the Wine Wizard, answering questions posted by readers.

Alison is also the author of The Wine Maker’s Answer Book, Solutions to Every Problem, Answers to Every Question.  In this book, Alison covers everything from funky smells to identifying mystery grapes that might be growing in your backyard to solutions for turning so-so wines into something you could be proud of.   Her response to questions is practical and straight-forward.

Wanting the best for its members, SHW is planning to pre-order Alison’s book at $15 each (includes tax and shipping).  Furthermore, SHW has also arranged for Alison to personally sign your copy at the March 19 meeting.  Her book makes an inspiring gift for the wannabe winemakers in your life, and a welcome reference for all winemakers.

Please indicate your interest for Alison’s book to Sonia Baron by Monday, March 3; Sonia’s contact information is at the head of this post.
