Wine expert to visit Eagle Harbor Book Company

Paul Zitarelli will stop by Eagle Harbor Book Company at 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15 to discuss his book “36 Bottles of Wine.”

Zitarelli is a Harvard-trained applied mathematician who abandoned that path for a life in wine.

He is one of a small number of Americans to hold the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Level 4 Diploma (precursor to the Master of Wine) and applies that knowledge as a wine merchant in his retail business Full Pull Wines.

In this book, he offers readers a helpful guide to get them through the wine shop by curating a shortlist of 36 bottles to try in a year (three varieties per month — a red, a white, plus something else, like a sparkling or rose) and explains in an accessible, humorous style what and who makes each worth drinking.

In addition, 30 recipes for monthly meals connect seasonal food to wine, composing beautiful sensory experiences. Wines are featured in the book by country of origin: France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Hungary, Chile, America, Australia and New Zealand.

This event is free and open to the public. Visit www.eagleharborbooks.com to learn more.
