Under the Harvest Moon (wine), This is Where I Leave You


I recently read This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper. FYI, This is Where I Leave You is coming to a movie theater near you this fall. Check out the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH0cEP0mvlU

After watching the trailer and learning that it had been based on Tropper’s book, I was intrigued and had to read it. The book took place in the fall so what better wine to drink with it than Harvest Moon from the Warwick Valley Winery, deep in the heart of the black dirt region of New York state. Harvest Moon is one of my absolute favorite wines. It’s a white wine with subtle peach and apricot flavors. It’s semi dry and semi-sweet. The incredibly refreshing taste is perfect served chilled or on ice.

While I was enjoying the wine, I was not enjoying the book. I was very disappointed. From viewing the trailer and reading the book synopsis and reviews, I was expecting something very different. I don’t consider myself to be a person who is offended by language or vulgar jokes. However, the language was very vulgar and every chapter had to do with sex. I felt like the vulgarity and language really took away from the plot. But, hey, everyone has their own taste in books. This book was not mine.

I’ll definitely be taking the wine with me, but I’m sorry Johnathan Tropper, this is where I leave you.
