10 Tasty Book + Wine Pairings

We’ve teamed up with the awesome folks at Second Glass to celebrate the happy marriage of books and wine. Last week, we asked you to share your best book + wine pairings and offered a pair of tickets to Second Glass’s NYC Wine Riot to a randomly-selected winner.

Congratulations to our winner, Haley! She recommends The Sun Also Rises and a good Spanish tempranillo.
