Hemingway’s Wines in

A Moveable Feast 

Ernest Hemingway once wrote: "Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” 


In his memoir, A Moveable Feast, Hemingway shows what life was like for aspiring writers in Paris. He talks about his friendships with Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein, his first marriage and their life in the Latin Quarter, and his writing routine in Parisian cafes. His love of good wine shines through as he never fails to mention which wine he enjoyed with his friends and what they ate with it. Wine was entirely entwined with the writer’s lifestyle in Paris. 

Victoria Daskal has sourced four of the wines featured in the book for Mummy Wine Club’s September subscription box. This limited edition box is also being offered as part of the Chiswick Book Festival and will contain 4 specially selected wines, a vintage copy of A Moveable Feast, full tasting notes and information on the wines in digital format, and an invitation to a virtual discussion on the book and the wines taking place on Monday September 14th at 8pm.
