"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.

Who Enjoys Sipping With The Exes in My Glass? Women wine lovers, of course! But many others too:

  • This book is for women who have lost hope in the perfect man.  
  • This book is for all the ladies who want to steer a different course.  
  • This book is for survivors of college dating romance, divorce and the wine cooler era.  
  • This book is for anyone who has struggled with dating judgment and sexual boundaries. 

The Exes in My Glass: How I Refined My Taste in Men & Alcohol will show you the intoxicating power of learning to love yourself, embracing your baggage and never giving up on your dreams.

This wine read is many great laughs and lessons poured into one. It's a dating romance. It's a divorce memoir. It's a series of boyfriend diaries with some wine romance spritzed on top.

If you love memoirs by women that will make you laugh, cry and raise a toast to life, scroll up and grab a copy today. (Available in paperback and Nook books.)
