THERESA Fogarty of PE’s specialist bookstore Fogarty’s and Wine Extra Magazine Editor, Maryna Strachan, who is also from The TOPS at SPAR Wine Show, are presenting a tasty treat for local book lovers and wine enthusiasts on July 28.

Given that Book Club is really just another name for Wine Club, the ladies have paired Fogarty’s Top 10 books with complementary labels and varieties – making choosing wines for your next “book club” a cinch.

Some of the Top 10 pairings that Fogarty and Strachan will present are Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner and Spier’s Creative Block 2; Sally Andrew’sRecipes for Love and Murder and JC Le Roux’s flagship MCC Scintilla; and Jo Jo Moyes’ The Girl You Left Behind and D’Aria’s Sauvignon Blanc.

Guests can enjoy a 45-minute tutored tasting of each novel and its most complementary wine, followed by browsing and mingling with fellow book and wine lovers.

Strachan will also explain why a spicy Shiraz pairs best with a sexy thriller while a fine fizz elevates ladies’ literature, among other popular book and wine partners.

The event will begin at 6pm until 8pm at Fogarty’s Book Store in the Walmer Park Shopping Centre.

While entrance is free, reservation is essential as seats are limited.

RSVP at by Monday, July 25 at the latest.
