To celebrate GuildSomm's 10th anniversary, we've compiled 15 of our favorite feature articles in a beautiful, cloth-bound coffee table book. Read works by Kelli White, Matt Stamp, Bryce Wiatrak, Alex Maltman, Gregory Jones, Jamie Goode, Jane Lopes, and others—in print for the first time. While we love this internet platform, we are really excited to put some of our work into book form.
We are printing just 500 copies of this book, available to GuildSomm members only and sold at cost. However, if you pre-order today, you can guarantee your copy and get 15% off the book price! The price will increase to $59 on December 16. We expect to ship the books in early January.
