Deirdre Heekin wrote the book I wish I wrote. I love her book called "Libitation, bitter alchemy". It means to pour as a contribution. When Deade pours a glass of wine, it feels like a holiday before the fruit reaches my lips.
I was hooked on the first line. The book of Deade is a journey into the heart of an artist, reader, writer, world traveler, perfumer, gardener, chef and wine maker.
I have the pleasure of meeting her. It is beautiful, from the inside out. Then I tasted her wine. She is as sublime as she.
Later, I watched her husband-chef Caleb, who was preparing the vivid, bright green, organic wild onions and green dandelions. Dinning at the Woodstock's large wooden table, the Vermont coffee was just like eating at home.
Within minutes, their fresh home-grown products are transported from their garden Barnard, Vermont to their Italian-New England, trattoria – osteria pane e salute.
Deade and Caleb's coffee is the real meaning of the fork farm, the grapes on the table. I hope to come back for another taste of Caleb's cooking and another sip of wine – the perfect marriage.
I want to take off grapes from their farm, try wine and vegetables in my café and fly to Tuscany all at the same time.
I did not want to leave Woodstock, Vermont. While I was taking my flight from Burlington to Sarasota, Florida, I found the most recent book of Deade and I started reading. Later I did not even notice that we landed.

I had read it, word for word, and started again.
(I want to tell Dadere that this is one of the best books on the journey, the wine and the love I've ever read).
As a former reviewer for a national magazine and literary magazine, it was easy to discuss the content of the books. I can not describe "Leaving" and make it fair. I just urge you to read it and then buy it for all you know, who share their passion for bread and wine, beauty, nature and life.
