Great books deserve great wine.
Damian Barr is an award-winning writer, journalist and host of his own infamous Literary Salon. Permanently in search of the perfect martini, A Book and A Bottle combines Damians two great passions, books and booze.
Quite simply: we savour a carefully chosen novel then sample a bottle or three from one of the oldest UK wine merchants, Corney & Barrow, before deciding on the perfect novel pairing. It may be directly from the book, inspired by it or even contrary to it. Our Novel Pairings come beautifully packaged and include a classic book and a carefully chosen bottle with our exclusive tasting notes. A unique gift for thinkers and drinkers.
If one just isn't enough you can subscribe to our bi monthly gifting service via our website. Here you will find Damian's exclusive column, a Bibulous-o-graphy featuring all the booze from our chosen book and a tasting podcast with our experts.
Would Bridget Jones still drink Chardonnay? Which Champagne does James Bond prefer? How tipsy is Ulysses?
