I came across a review of Peter Sichel’s memoir “The Secrets of My Life: Vintner, Prisoner, Soldier, Spy” in the Journal of Wine Economics last fall (Volume 12, No. 3). Just the review of the book is fascinating, so I had to order a copy for our Wine Library collection. The book is available at the library now, you can place a hold on it here. We also have a photo of Peter Sichel in the Wine Library's collection of photographs. The photo (the image at right) is of Sichel tasting wine circa 1980; you can find the record in our catalog here.
If you are interested in browsing through more of the photographs in the Wine Library collection, many of our photos have been digitized and are available to view through Sonoma County Library's Heritage Collections database. Here is the link to Heritage Collections, and here is the link directly to the Wine Photography Collection.
