GABLES WINE & WORDS


Patrick@GablesWine.com

My name is Patrick Alexander and for the past thirty plus years I have lived in Coral Gables, Miami, Florida where, among other things, I teach wine appreciation classes – hence the name of this site, GablesWine.com.

In addition to teaching classes on wine, I have also written a book about wine The Booklovers’ Guide to Wine

My additional books include three novels set in a fictionalized, and not very well disguised version of Coral Gables – entitled The Greenhaven Trilogy.

My first book, back in 2008, was a study of the French novelist Marcel Proust, Marcel Proust’s Search for Lost Time, and I am currently working on a new book comparing Proust’s seven volume novel In Search of Lost Time, with Anthony Powell’s twelve volume novel A Dance to the Music of Time.  The new book is called ‘A Dance to Lost Time’ and will be released later this year.

Also due for release later this year is ‘Paradise Found: – A Brief History of South Florida.’

A more complete list of my books is available at my Amazon author’s page.

When not writing, teaching, drinking wine or sounding-off to the Miami Herald, I conduct historic tours for the Coral Gables Museum and the historic Biltmore Hotel.
