SiaG Today is a big day for our friend and managing editor, Evan Dawson and we couldn't be prouder or more excited. His book "Summer in a Glass" is finally available for pre-order and he launched his new book-focused website today as well.

Check it out today to learn more about the book, read a sample chapter and find out how you can order your copy today.

I've read it already and I can't recommend it enough.

If you're a reader of this site, you already know that Evan is not only an excellent writer, but is also gleefully afflicted with an uncommon, energetic love for wine.

With this book, he reminds all of us that wine isn’t just fermented grape juice on a store shelf. It is a confluence of people, place and passion, and he take us inside the lives of those who put all of themselves into the bottles we uncork every day.

Whether you’re a wine geek or are new to wine, this book will leave you thirsty — not only for Finger Lakes wine, but for more tales of love, loss, frustration and redemption.

Congratulation, Evan. You've been working long and hard on this book for years — it's a pleasure to see it come to fruition, and be such a great read. You'd better get working on that sequel. The publisher is going to want one.

Watch the book trailer above and then head over to the website to learn more.
