They help relax, release, cozy up, cheer up… challenge the thinking, lift the spirit, lead to embracing our emotions. We talk about books, of course, but also about wines and the special alchemy that happens when you put the two together. A good book and a good wine is all you need for a winter evening or a Sunday afternoon well spent. Whatever the occasion, a glass of wine helps to bring more life to the stories, characters, and plots of the best works. These are 8 that everyone should read at least once in their lifetime – and with at least one glass of Mandriola.
1. Two nights in Lisbon, by Chris Pavone
The capital is the chosen setting for this delightful work of international intrigue. It all begins when Ariel wakes up in a Lisbon hotel room and realizes her husband has disappeared. So begins an adventure through the streets of the capital, under an intense heat, in the most chaste neighborhoods of the capital, from Chiado to Alfama. The pace is fast and calls for refreshment – nothing better than taking a break to enjoy a cool white wine.
2. Year of the Death of Ricardo Reis, by José Saramago
In a completely different style, we propose a reading that matches the complexity and intensity of a Mandriola Red. This is perhaps one of Saramago’s most brilliant pieces of literature, a conversation between Ricardo Reis and his master Fernando Pessoa, between the past and the future, between life and death. It all takes place in the streets of Lisbon, and between the pages and the puffs of wine, on the sofa of your house.
3. Jesus Christ drank beer, by Afonso Cruz
A village in Alentejo, a love story between grandmother and granddaughter, a dream of traveling to Jerusalem, a teacher, an Englishwoman inside a whale, and great reflections on what is fundamental in our lives. According to Afonso Cruz, Jesus Christ drank beer. Maybe, but at that time there was still no Mandriola Red wine. Try it and say in your own words: which one goes best with this remarkable work?
4. Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents, by Isabel Wilkerson
In this intense book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author tells us about the social structures that mark regimes around the world, from India to the US, not forgetting a trip into the dark past of Nazi Germany. There is a lot of talk about grape variety systems – but human grape varieties, wineries are not to blame. In this case, a cheerful, playful wine works perfectly in contrast to this more serious-toned text. Try Mandriola White wine.
5. The Unbearable Lightness of Being, by Milan Kundera
Moving on to a novel, we propose a book you won’t be able to read in a just a sip. Throughout the pages, you are confronted with your own ideas about human existence, love, and freedom, through intense and well-built characters. “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” is a book to be savored little by little and that will stay in your memory. Just like the Mandriola red wine you can pair it with!
6. Dry, by Neal Shusterman and Jarrod Shusterman
“Dry” is a vibrant thriller whose plot takes place in a future civilization where water scarcity leads to chaos. A ban on bathing, watering, or even turning on a faucet confronts the characters with an impossible situation that calls into question civilization as we know it. A book with an important conservation message and one that will leave you feeling thirsty – perfect to accompany with an easy-drinking, chilled white wine.
7. One Hundred Years Of Solitude, by Gabriel García Márquez
We now turn to one of the most acclaimed works of world literature and whose author received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982: “One Hundred Years of Solitude”. This book tells the stories of the Buendía family, over seven generations and in parallel with the history of the fictional city Macondo, which ends up being, in a way, a portrait of Colombia. The characters are incredibly human, with their qualities and flaws, fears, motivations, mistakes, and successes. Perhaps this is the main asset of this book, one of the best you can follow with an – also authentic – white Mandriola.
8. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*Ck, by Mark Manson
There is no shortage of books full of self-help advice-from taking time for yourself, to exercising, to meditation. Mark Manson has a different approach. The secret, according to the author is also in the subtle art of not caring: not about other people’s opinions, not about that unpleasant person at work, not about the inconvenient relative, not about the pressure of society. This is an irreverent book that will give you some answers about what is important. To be paired with Mandriola Red or White, whatever you feel like.
Reading a book is to discover another reality or even our inner reality. To accompany the reading with a good glass of wine is to bring an ally to this adventure, that helps to see everything from another perspective – and more relaxed! Try these suggestions and fall in love with these combinations.[seccao_slider] => Array ( [slideshow] => ) [article_text_2] => [showmap] => Não )
