“Adventures on the Wine Route: A Wine Buyer’s Tour of France” by Kermit Lynch. Good book. Being a learned wine lover I didn’t learn a lot of new stuff from the book but it was a good refresher course so to speak. It is a bit dated at this point even with the updates section at the end of the newer releases but many of the stories are interesting and entertaining still. If you’re a studious wine lover I’d say recommended. If you’re not into wine industry knowledge then pass.
Picked this up and read through it in short order. Really enjoyed it. Amazing how his general discussion of natural wines and anti-wine critic sentiment written in 1988 is still so relevant today.
The first wine book my father ever gave me. Liked it a lot. Not sure how it's aged, but need to dig it out of whatever box it's stashed in and give it another go.
