The Winemakers by Jan Moran - Author Interview

Here is a romantic novel by Jan Moran. I am glad to feature his interview today in my blog post. 
Thanks Jan :-)

Book Description:


1956: When Caterina Rosetta inherits a cottage in the countryside of Italy from a grandmother she's never known, she discovers a long-buried family secret -- a secret so devastating, it threatens the future of everything her mother has worked for.


Many years before, her mother's hard-won dreams of staking her family's claim in the vineyards of California came to fruition; but as an old murder comes to light, and Caterina uncovers a tragic secret that may destroy the man she loves, she realizes her happiness will depend on revealing the truth of her mother's buried past.


From author Jan Moran comes The Winemakers, a sweeping, romantic novel that will hold you in its grasp until the last delicious sip.

Author Interview:


What are your favorite wines?
So many wonderful wines... Some that have special meaning to me include Brunello di Montalcino, one of the wines featured in The Winemakers, as well as Moone-Tsai’s CorLeonis Cabernet Sauvignon, Chassagne Montrachet, and the Bordeaux: Pomerol, Saint-Émilion, and Margaux.

Although I don’t drink a lot, for casual evenings I might enjoy an Argentine Malbec, a Californian Pinot Noir, or a refreshing Sancerre. Every wine-producing region has a unique terroir, or set of environmental characteristics, which make the wines of each area special. When traveling, I love to sample regional wines.

Favorite travel spot?

I love to travel and have been fortunate to have seen much of the world. Favorite places? Wine regions, of course. Napa and Tuscany rank high on my list. Paris, the south of France, Hong Kong, London, New York, Austin, San Francisco, Hawaii, and so many other places. I’d love to visit the wine region of Argentina, too.

Favorite dessert?

Baking is a hobby and I’m on a quest to master the perfect cheesecake. Besides that, fruit tartes, chocolate mousse, ice cream... I seldom discriminate against desserts.

Do you have any hobbies?

Wine tasting, of course! And reading, traveling, antique markets, walking on the beach, swimming, snow skiing, spas…
Is there a message you want readers to take from your books?


Hope, triumph over adversity, appreciation of other cultures, belief in your own abilities.
