His second book, Inspiring Thirst, was published in 2004.

Nate Merchant of Tryon Distributing, North Carolina Kermit Lynch distributor, will be on hand to discuss the wines. The cost of the flight is $16.50 (excluding tax and gratuity) and space is limited, so call or email to reserve your spot today. Featured wines of the night include:
