Next on the Tee; Terroir of Golf, A Golf Book for Wine Lovers

In Taba Dale’s upcoming book, Terroir of Golf, she explores the fascinating synergy between golf and wine.

It all begins with the ground. True for both grapes and golf. The end result is the same for both grapes and golf courses:

A living work of art.

The book includes the intriguing story of The Claret Jug—golf’s most coveted trophy of the oldest major—the Open Championship.

You will also learn which professional golfers have their own wine label and what clubs throughout the world encourage golf and wine enthusiasts to indulge in their dual passions.

Dr. Tony Parker, the Historian at The World Golf Hall of Fame, generously lent this quote:
“I very much enjoyed Taba’s chapter on the Claret Jug. I found it entertaining and it accurately gives the background to the Claret Jug’s origin. She cleverly tied in the relationship of the “Auld Alliance” between Scotland and France and the advent of claret’s place in Scottish golfing society. This is a welcomed new wrinkle in the history of this great game of golf."
