This is an auction for EXTREMELY PALE ROSE: A QUEST FOR THE PALEST ROSE IN FRANCE, by Jamie Ivey.

"Witty escapism for those who enjoy, or enjoy reading about, good wine, good food, and good travel."
- Library Journal (US)

Amazon.com reviews:

"EXTREMELY PALE ROSÉ follows Jamie Ivey's charming journey as he, his wife, Tanya, and their hilariously debauched friend, Peter, travel the south of France in search of the palest of rosés. Far from the plonk he's used to, Jamie finds something fantastic about a cool, pale rosé on a hot day. Due to a translation mishap, Jamie is taunted by a local vintner that there is no paler rosé than hers and embarks on a quest to find one. Setting off on a ramshackle tour of France in search of the elusive bottle that meets the standards set, they visit main rosé producing areas and through eccentric locals discover much the regions have to offer. With wit, candor, and wonderful storytelling, Jamie Ivey maintains a tradition of excellence in food and travel writing. Readers are left with dreams of France, summer days, baguettes, and - extremely pale rosé."

"FIVE STARS!!!! EXTREMELY PALE ROSÉ is a wonderful book for anyone who loves Provence or wants to learn more about this special part of France. Reading this book made me wish I was back there right now. There's lots of good, accurate information and you really feel you get to know Jamie, Tanya and Peter as you go along for the ride on their quest. So, pour yourself a nice chilled glass of Provencal rosé and lose yourself in this fabulous book."
