One may be surprised to know that New Hampshire, a state with four seasons and dramatic weather changes, has its own wine country, but Carla Snow, the state’s first female Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW), can certainly attest to it. In Wine & Dine with New Hampshire, Snow offers an in depth look at New Hampshire’s award winning wines, ciders, and meads, and the pioneer companies who create them.
Carla Snow is the author of this first book on New Hampshire wineries. She has more than twenty years of restaurant experience. She studied at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu in Australia, earning both Culinary and Sommeliers certificates. Snow moved to Bordeaux and then the Rhône, to apprentice with the world’s best winemakers. Upon returning to her home state, New Hampshire, Snow began selecting wines for the area’s finest restaurants and stores. Now the owner of A Grape Affair, she creates fun, entertaining, educational events, ensuring wines are approachable by removing the “intimidation factor” of wine selection. Snow lives in Portsmouth, New Hampshire with her husband.
