A question I get asked a lot in my DM's: what wine books do I recommend?
These are great to have on hand for quick resource or when a thirst for non-fiction inspiration strikes.
Here's a recent list of what I've purchased in the last year.
Not for the faint of heart - this is heavy on the technical side, appropriate for the more advanced wine professional.
Not centered on wine at all, rather, a fascinating look into the world of fungi and the various sordid tales of its author, Merlin Sheldrake, from hunting for truffles to experimenting with psilocybin.
Also not a wine book - this is the story of Japanese farmer Masanobu Fukuoka, and how he reinvented rice farming via the use of permaculture.
I'd long admired the writing and works of Wink Lorch so I finally bit the bullet and purchased both her books on the wines of the Savoie and Jura. These are great references to have on hand for any wine student.

I've long been a fan of acclaimed wine zine Noble Rot, so when I learned they recently published a book, I knew I needed it. The photography and packaging is beautiful, and makes for a great coffee table book.
