Meet Theresa Snead a Direct Descendent from The Salem With Haunt
Salem Witch Haunt was intended to be a stand-alone book, until the shocking ending made it apparent that her characters were not finished telling their story.
SALEM WITCH HAUNT embarks on the journey of 17 year old Bess Martin, a senior at Danvers High, who time-travels back to Salem, 1692. After the initial shock of discovering where she is, Bess sets out to save her 11th great-grandmother from the gallows-tree. With a near-perfect knowledge of the historical events about to unfold, Bess knows the untimely fate of many. The problem is that Bess has inherited her grandmother’s sharp tongue—a tongue that caused her grandmother to be tried and hanged as a witch in Salem. Can Bess change the course of history, or will her quick temper cause her to share her grandmother’s fate?
With a stable of properties spanning three of Spain’s most important winemaking regions, and his skills behind such wines as L’Ermita, Propiedad, and Descendientes de J Palacios, winemaker Alvaro Palacios is arguably that country’s greatest winemaker.
L’Ermita alone, made from miniscule yields of old vine Garnacha coaxed from the inhospitably steeps slopes of Catalunya’s Priorat region, and which retails at over $1,000 a bottle, would make him that. But Alvaro, born into a family rich with the history of making wine in Spain’s most well-known region, Rioja, does not let this one iconic wine define him.
Alvaro also makes two other lauded wines in that region alone, Finca Dofi and Les Terrasses; and some of Bierzo’s best Mencia-based wines with his Descendientes offerings; all while also managing the family’s oldest interest, the legendary Palacios Remondo in Rioja.
Recently featured on Wine Spectator‘s October 15th Spain Report issue, Alvaro takes a short break from harvest to visit The Connected Table LIVE Wednesday, October 7, 2:25pm EST on W4CY.com The show will be available on demand at iHeart.com and free iHeart App after its live airing: http://www.iheart.com/show/209-The-Connected-Table-Live
