With “hammock season” in full swing, it’s a great time to steal away with a dry rose and a book.

Some great producers include Bedrock, Quivira, Unti, Bonny Doon and McDowell.

Do you sip and read? If so, what are your favorites? Your favorite books?

Jessica Dur, who teaches English and history at Sebastopol’s Nonesuch, a private school, says summer reading a true gift.

“I am a year-round reader; even though I am busy with curriculum and research and re-reading the novels I teach, I still manage to read for pleasure in the midst of it all. Summer is all mine, though, and the time when I truly get to read whatever I want. It’s luxurious.”
