About Us


Damian Barr’s Literary Salon presents:

A Book and A Bottle



Great books deserve great wine. And what’s a book club without a bottle or three?

Every other month Damian Barr, author and Drinks Critic, will suggest surprising and delicious #NovelPairings

Would Bridget Jones choose Chardonnay now? Which Champagne does James Bond prefer? How tipsy is Ulysses?

As well as his exclusive column, there is a Bibulous-o-graphy, featuring all the booze from our chosen book, and a podcast with Corney & Barrow and Foyles. All books and bottles will be available to buy individually and together as a gorgeous gift subscription.

We’re thrilled to present A Book and A Bottle events across the UK. Our successful events have previously featured Jessie Burton for the world premiere of The Muse and Lionel Shriver on her new novel The Mandibles.

As part of these exclusive, Salon events with Damian, you get to taste a selection of fabulous wines carefully chosen by Corney & Barrow.
