Jim Hammond, "The Southwestern Wine Guy," discusses and signs his book.
Along with being a wine columnist and wine blogger, Jim is writing a series of wine guides to southwestern wines. He has extensive experience with the wines of Europe, South America and Asia-Pacific, and today he is concentrating on the wine of the Southwestern US and California.
Jim lives in New Mexico, so, naturally, his first book in the series is Wines of Enchantment: A Guide to Finding and Enjoying the Wines of New Mexico. And with New Mexico's wine industry growing so quickly Jim decdided he needed to publish a 2nd edition - the "Centennial Edition". This informative book provides readers a gateway to New Mexico’s rapidly growing and award winning wine industry. More than 30 wineries and 5 tasting rooms in New Mexico are described in vivid detail and with photos. The book also contains information about how to store, prepare and pair wine with food and wine tasting tips. Both novices and connoisseurs will find an unexpected adventure in wine tasting by following Hammond’s guide.
