Supposedly it takes Eight Hundred Grapes to make a glass of wine.  That is why Laura Dave chose that phrase for the title of her novel about Georgia Ford’s family and their vineyard.  When Georgia looks out the window during the final fitting for her wedding dress, she sees her fiancée walking with a beautiful actress and a small child.  It so obvious that they have a connection.  Georgia returns to the family vineyard, hoping she will get some comfort and inspiration from her parents and their long, happy marriage.  It seems that Georgia is continually faced with new revelations.  Almost nothing she thought she knew about her love life or family life is true.  This is a novel about chaos and how things do often work out for the best.  The wine and scenery descriptions get you ready for a wine tour here in Michigan.
