"From start to finish, first sip to last, A Hedonist in the Cellar is crisp, stylish and very funny." —The New York Times Book Review"As bracing as high-acid Riesling. . . . McInerney the novelist, with his eye for detail and smart aleck wit, is never far from the page, [and] he's able to get inside each destination and suss out what makes it interesting." —The Washington Post Book World"Splendid vino vignettes [that] pique both curiosity and thirst."—Entertainment Weekly"[McInerney's] research is impeccable. . . . Wine writer or novelist, the man is a story teller and a good one, [and] he is a hard-working professional who brings solid reporting and exceptional narrative skills to a subgenre woefully in need of them."—The New York Times
