Conversations on Talent,

Technique, and Terroir


Natalie Berkowitz

natalie berkowitz


Human beings have been converting grapes into wine for thousands of years—long enough, it would seem, to have developed an elixir nuanced to perfection. But wine expert Natalie Berkowitz, who taught Wine Appreciation for more than a decade at Barnard College and Columbia University, says Mother Nature needs "The Winemaker's Hand" with its unique combination of talent, passion, and experience to create a memorably savory Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Malbec or other varietal. In this unique book, Berkowitz presents insights from more than 40 viticulture maestros from all over the world. So, pour yourself a glass, sit back and enjoy a series of fascinating conversations about the art of making wine (vintners provide delicious food recipes, too.) 'A votre santé!

NASA Astronaut Mark Watney is the self-described "loneliest man in history" recounting his harrowing experience as the only human being on Mars. Watney is "The Martian" and he's been on the Red Planet for 6 days when he regains consciousness and realizes he's utterly alone. His fellow Ares 3 Mission members are enroute back to Earth, thinking he's been killed in a freak accident during a horrific sandstorm. Watney, a Botanist and Engineer, is faced with the unthinkable challenge of staying alive for the next four years until the next Mars Mission arrives. Will someone find his diary or will The Martian survive?
