Overview

Documenting many years of experience in grape growing and winemaking, this is a journal of one man's knowledge of and passion for wine. From an initial interest that was sparked by the Midwestern cult vine Cynthiana and an apprenticeship in California to wine tours of Europe and the planting of his own vineyard, Paul Roberts's stories cover both the passionate and the practical elements of the wine business in detail. Also discussed is the issue of the small farmer in America and the need for ecologically sound farming practices, drawing on such writers as Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, and Wendell Berry, and on Native American thinkers such as Chief Seattle. The romance, the reality, and the philosophy of viniculture are woven tightly together in this fascinating journal.
