A Glass Half Full: A Cellar Master's Journey Through Wine and Life
Sterling Publishing Company, Incorporated, Oct 4, 2016 - Biography & Autobiography - 248 pages
At just 25 years of age, Kevin Zraly had already gone further than most wine experts of the time. Already a cellar master at New York City's internationally renowned Windows on the World restaurant, he had also visited many of the major wineries in California and Europe and taught America's first accredited college course in wine tasting. A wine revolution was happening--and Kevin not only witnessed it all, he was one of its major players. Along the way, he saw wine expand from a limited business to a worldwide industry; graduated more than 20,000 students from the Windows on the World Wine School; and met Presidents, celebrities, and winemakers. In this highly entertaining and fascinating memoir, filled with a "Who's Who" of wine, James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award winner Kevin Zraly opens up about his memorable experiences in his life, both hilarious and heartbreaking-including, for the first time, the events of 9/11, several personal family tragedies, and his own bout with cancer. But ever the optimist, Kevin faces the future always looking at the glass half-full...with a vintage wine.
