February 25 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PST

About the In-Person Event

“Language is wine upon the lips” – Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf made the connection between language and wine, so we wanted to take a page from her and create an entire Adventures by the Book series devoted to the pairing of wine and books. Voila! Introducing our new Reading Between the Vines series to take place at the estate producer Hook & Ladder Winery, 2134 Olivet Rd, Santa Rosa, in Sonoma County, California!

With the assistance of Melier, indulge in a leisurely morning filled with a sumptuous wine tasting and book pairing experience, presented under California’s brilliant trademark sunshine. While you sample some of the delectable wines that Hook & Ladder Winery is known for, meet Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Jan Moran and learn about her most recent novel, The Winemakers.

Your Adventure includes a glass of Hook & Ladder sparkling wine specifically selected to pair with Jan’s book, pastries, a signed hardcover copy of The Winemakers, author presentation, Q&A, book signing, and the opportunity to meet the author in a relaxed and intimate setting at the beautiful Hook & Ladder Winery property.

About the Author

Jan Moran is a 9-time USA Today and 3-time Wall Street Journal bestselling author of heartwarming fiction, including the feel-good, contemporary beach read series of Summer Beach, Coral Cottage, Crown Island, and Love California. Her riveting, immersive historical family sagas include Hepburn’s Necklace, The Chocolatier, and The Perfumer.

The Winemakers is a sweeping, romantic novel about both the beauty and secrets of a family inheritance that will hold you in its grasp until the last delicious sip.
