About the book
Eight Hundred Grapes, the breakout new novel from bestselling author Laura Dave, is a heartbreaking, funny, and deeply evocative book about love, marriage, family, wine, and the treacherous terrain in which they all intersect.
The story opens on Georgia Ford, who is a week away from her wedding when she discovers that her perfect, British fiancée has been keeping a devastating secret. So she does what she has always done in times of trouble: she flees to her family’s Sonoma vineyard, hoping to find comfort and escape in the familiar routines of the grape harvest. When she arrives, she finds things are anything but routine.
Dave’s story moves seamlessly from the present to the Ford family past, revealing how Georgia’s formidable parents fell in love, founded The Last Straw Vineyard, raised their children and ultimately, drifted apart, arriving at a place where they would consider leaving behind their legacy—and each other. As Georgia attempts to fix her family’s problems, she realizes that all is not what it seems, and sometimes you have to let go of the way things are supposed to be and embrace the way things are.
Eight Hundred Grapes is the perfect companion for one of those quiet summer afternoons spent reading on the porch with a glass (or two) of a bright, chilled white (Laura recommends a Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley’s Duckhorn Vineyards).
