Book Review: A Perfect Score
I was thrilled when I got asked to review A Perfect Score: The Art, Soul, and Business of a 21st Century Winery. This book is the story of Craig and Kathryn Hall and Hall and Walt Wines. As a former wine club member (due to shipping restrictions once my mailing address went to NJ) I realized I didn’t know much about the story of the winery or their owners. All I knew is they had some great red wines!
Boy was I fascinated with this book and the history of not just the winery but of the owners themselves. Every winery has a story. What might look big and glamorous didn’t happen overnight and unless you are friends you really don’t know of the struggles people have to get to the point they are today.
|First visit to Hall (Rutherford) 2012
The Hall’s were novices with a dream. Kathryn having grown up on a vineyard in Mendocino, CA ran the vineyard after her parents passed, she actually lived in Dallas TX. She met Craig when she was running for Mayor of Dallas. A political career that took her to be the US Ambassador to Austria. When you visit Hall, you will see many of the touches from her trips abroad.
