Wine Wrapped Up for the Holidays: The L’Occasion Gift Guide

Contributor blog post by Jill Barth:

…Continue reading here for Jill’s wine post – a wine lover’s gift guide – for the holiday season. Her festive picks take your taste buds from a German sparking Riesling to the Southern Rhône vines. Her pick is Domaine Grand Nicolet Vielles Vignes Rasteau 2013 made with 100% Grenache (old vines).

Happy sips to all!

Jill Barth

Jill is a writer whose characters make wine, love wine, and live wine. Research for her forthcoming novel–the story of a Provençal winemaking family during the Second World War–has afforded her glorious pleasures: meetings with ambitious French vignerons, travel up and down France in bouncy Renaults, overnights in shuttered châteaux, and many hours as a student of wine with a glass to her lips. In this role, she not only enjoys her own relationship with wine but she also indulges in the life of the French winemaking family that inhabits the pages of her novel.

Jill writes about wine, travel and occasionally yoga (she’s a certified yoga instructor). Her fiction has been featured on NPR and has been published in several literary journals.

Her writings can also be found on her blog L’Occasion.
