Join Valerie Stivers, author of the Daily’s Eat Your Words column, for a virtual wine tasting with expert Hank Zona, live on the Paris Review Instagram. They’ll be drinking in the spirit of D. H. Lawrence, the subject of the latest Eat Your Words. Bring one of the wines listed here, or any chilled red, and they’ll discuss Lady Chatterley’s Lover, give you tasting notes, and suggest food pairings.

He can easily be found on social media under his business’s name, The Grapes Unwrapped. There he hopes to reinforce the theme that wine is fun, social, connective, and personal.
