"It's the Eat, Pray, Love of the wine world." -- Wine Enthusiast

_____________________________________

Lisa Mattson thought she'd grow up to acquire a taste for cheap beer and guys named Bubba-not spend her weekends cruising through Napa vineyards in a convertible. When she flees the rural Midwest for the big city in her twenties, she struggles with naivety, insecurity and the double standards of dating, falling for a mind-numbing string of ex-boyfriends that hone her palate and guide her destiny. Grab a corkscrew and join Lisa on her not-so-straight-and-narrow road to a fabulous life in wine country where her glass-and her heart-are always full. These witty boyfriend diaries of her raucous journey from lust to love and beer to wine will leave you thirsty to uncork your true potential, too.

One of the memoirs by women popular with wine lovers, The Exes in My Glass: How I Refined My Taste in Men & Alcohol takes Lisa from rural Kansas to South Florida's beaches, the streets of New Orleans and the vineyards of Northern California, from naïve and love-lust while chasing pot-smoking scuba divers, waiters and models, to polished and savvy when pursued by winemakers and pro golfers. These dating romance disaster stories are about much more than a wine girl thirsty for worldliness and starving for love. It's about how someone who had given up on the fairytale found the courage to face her mistakes and take a second chance at living her dreams.

About the Author

With a bachelor's degree in communications and a master's in heartache, Lisa Mattson's fate to author this book was sealed in elementary school when a snowball fight with her first boyfriend landed him in the hospital. He dumped her the following day.


Raised in rural Kansas, Mattson's childhood was filled with cheap beer and fried chicken-an ideal foundation for a career promoting prestige wineries. Many nights spent raccoon hunting also prepared Mattson for her first journalism job writing obituaries for a daily newspaper. She escaped to Florida during college, where she chased boys and caught rays while waiting tables. Not long after taking her first wine class at Florida International University, Mattson was sipping malbecs and editing stories for a wine magazine.


Twenty years and many ex-boyfriends later, Lisa Mattson is considered a thought leader in wine marketing, known for creating an award-winning winery blog, clever videos and compelling digital media content. Taking the not-so-straight-or-narrow road to finding her dream job and her dream guy was the most fulfilling-and humbling-journey of her life. The Exes in My Glass: How I Refined My Taste in Men & Alcohol is her memoir.

She resides in Sonoma County wine country with her husband, their Italian greyhound and a Champagne-centric wine collection.
