Georgia Ford is just one week away from her wedding when she discovers her fiancée has been keeping a life-changing secret from her. Devastated and confused, she flees from Los Angeles to her family vineyard, hoping to find comfort among her brothers and parents during their annual harvest celebration. But when she arrives, she finds this year’s harvest has gone horribly awry: her siblings are fighting, her parents have separated, and—the worst news of all—her family is selling the winery to a massive corporation. Set against the lush backdrop of Sonoma country, Eight Hundred Grapes is a heartbreaking, funny, and deeply evocative novel that perfectly illustrates why Dave has been called “a wry observer of love” (USA Today), a “decadent storyteller” (Marie Claire), and “compulsively readable” (Woman’s Day).
Laura Dave is the author of the critically acclaimed novels The First Husband, The Divorce Party, and London Is the Best City in America, which have been published in over a dozen countries and optioned for film by Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Anniston, and Universal Studios. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, Oprah Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, Glamour, Redbook, Self, ESPN, and the New York Observer.
