Glowing review in "Stars & Stripes" for our Vietnam novel, DASPO
How wild was life for soldiers stationed in Saigon during the Vietnam War? According to “D.A.S.P.O.,” a novel based on the experiences of military filmmakers assigned to the South Vietnamese capital, it was a lot more fun than serving in Kabul or Baghdad during the global war on terrorism.

Bargain Bottles
Snail Wine? Maybe It's Time! Go ahead and browse the shelves in your local wine emporium.   Chances are you won’t find many bottles that come from the Côtes de Gascogne.  That’s because Gascony, southeast of Bordeaux, due west of Toulouse, and a hop and ski...

The Perils and Pleasures of Pinot Noir
Winemakers
