Icewine

"ICEWINE" is a thriller that is set in Europe and follows the adventures of Alex James, owner of a boutique hotel and gourmet restaurant in London, his girlfriend, a tempestuous Italian wine buyer, and his friend, a wealthy, Egyptian philanthropist and gourmand. The adventure begins when Alex and his friends purchase a vintage bottle of rare German wine at a London auction. The wine is Icewine, a unique wine that can only be produced when grapes freeze on the vine, are immediately picked, and pressed into wine. Their bottle was once the property of Hermann Goring, second in command to Adolf Hitler. By luck, the trio uncovers a microfilm on the underside of the label that was hidden by Goring. The microfilm contains a clue to a fortune he hid during the waning months of the war; a fortune that would be used to begin a new Reich. The trio deciphers the clue and decides to follow where it leads them. All the while, they are being tracked by Nazi killers, who intended to purchase the bottle themselves and will stop at nothing to claim Goring's hidden fortune. The adventure takes them across Europe as they unravel the clues to the fortune, ultimately confronting the Nazi killers and the secret past of Hermann Goring.

Shadows over the Sun

After traumatic experiences she has had to battle with bipolar mental disorder. Giselle tells her story in flawless prose and with compelling honesty. This is the story of a strong woman adding to the growing literature on women's lives. The story takes you in from the first page and never lets you go. DR. BASIL MOORE, PHILOSOPHER/LECTURER An honest and precise account of a life journey, demonstrating life struggle and immense resilience of the author to bounce back and reinvent herself.

Wine and Conversation

Several of the Davis subjects reported that none of the wines served was buttery or earthy. However, the hypothesis that there would be greater consensus with common words than unusual ones was confirmed for both groups of subjects.

Wine and Conversation

The vocabulary of wine is large and exceptionally vibrant -- from straight-forward descriptive words like "sweet" and "fragrant", colorful metaphors like "ostentatious" and "brash", to the more technical lexicon of biochemistry. The world of wine vocabulary is growing alongside the current popularity of wine itself, particularly as new words are employed by professional wine writers, who not only want to write interesting prose, but avoid repetition and cliché. The question is, what do these words mean? Can they actually reflect the objective characteristics of wine, and can two drinkers really use and understand these words in the same way? In this second edition of Wine and Conversation, linguist Adrienne Lehrer explores whether or not wine drinkers (both novices and experts) can in fact understand wine words in the same way. Her conclusion, based on experimental results, is no. Even though experts do somewhat better than novices in some experiments, they tend to do well only on wines on which they are carefully trained and/or with which they are very familiar. Does this mean that the elaborate language we use to describe wine is essentially a charade? Lehrer shows that although scientific wine writing requires a precise and shared use of language, drinking wine and talking about it in casual, informal setting with friends is different, and the conversational goals include social bonding as well as communicating information about the wine. Lehrer also shows how language innovation and language play, clearly seen in the names of new wines and wineries, as well as wine descriptors, is yet another influence on the burgeoning and sometimes whimsical world of wine vocabulary.
