A note about how the Wine Country Vixens came to life.

About nine years ago my husband took a job promotion that landed us in one of the most beautiful parts of our country, east bay San Francisco, CA.  We purchased a small ranch house in a lovely wine-infused area called Livermore.  It was here that I discovered what wine tasting and living in a wine region is really all about.  Picture living in a small city surrounded by rolling hills covered in grapevines. Every season bought day after day of wine discovery.  The entry to the city consists of a welcome sign posted on the front of a tipped over wine barrel flanked by local grapevines. One of my first outings was a day of wine tasting and vineyard hoping! Needless to say I fell in love with the wines of the region.

Twice a year Livermore hosted wine festivals.  It was while I was standing at one of the designated tour bus stops with a group of friends, an empty wine glass and time on our hands that we began to come up with creative names for wine labels.  Hench, Zinfandel became Zinfandelity—and the writer in me couldn’t resist turning that into a story about one woman’s journey through infidelity.  It just seemed perfect to blend wine, friendship and life’s little tribulations into great subject matter and so the Wine Country Vixens were born.

I hope you enjoy meeting Beth Chadwick and her quirky friends in Zinfandelity, and will come back to see more of them in my next Wine Country Vixen book, Pinot Gigolo!
