About the Author

Gerald Asher is author of The Pleasures of Wine, Vineyard Tales, Wine Journal, and On Wine. As an international wine merchant, he was decorated by the French Government in 1974 for his contribution to French viticulture, in 2001 was named Outstanding Wine Professional of the Year by the James Beard Foundation, and in 2009 was inducted into the Culinary Institute of America's Vintner's Hall of Fame.


"A terrific introduction to one of the greatest wine writers of our times... Complexity [that's] easy to savor." -- Lara Douglass Wine & Spirits Magazine "Unique and engaging." The Blue Lifestyle "Simply put, no one writes like Asher anymore, and 'A Carafe of Red' serves as a capable introduction to his style and his work. As a study in effective, entertaining, and efficient wine prose, few authors even come close to Asher's celebrated ability to lucidly summarize the heart and soul of his subjects in only a few well-written and well-paced sentences. In that way, 'A Carafe of Red' is a short masterclass in wine prose." -- Joe Roberts 1WineDude.com "This is a number of charming collected essays on various aspects of wine by one of the wine world's most stylish writers, historians and wine lovers." -- Dan Berger The Press Democrat "Asher's discussion of the most memorable wine in his life makes the reader want to learn more while they are entertained in the process." -- Conal Gregory The Scotsman
