Wine critic Kurt Hummel can make or break careers with his column for Taste Magazine. But when his publisher orders him to spend a year profiling rising stars of California’s wine country and organizing a competition between the big name wineries of Napa and the smaller artisan wineries of Sonoma, his world gets turned upside-down by an enigmatic young winemaker who puts art before business.
October 2014: I'm very excited to announce that I have adapted Sotto Voce into a novel published by Interlude Press. I was very honored that the book also received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. The novel is an adaptation of this original work, with extensive re-writing and additions to the fic. I will not be taking this original draft of Sotto Voce down from A03, and I intend to keep it in its original unedited and unrevised form here. It is not the same as the novel, and I feel it stands on its own, errors and all.
