Overview

From British writer Colin Fraser comes his own inspiring, beautifully written true story about winemaking in Italy. Fraser found and purchased a piece of abandoned land with a derelict house in the beautiful Sabine Hills northeast of Rome. He transformed it into a successful property, planting a vineyard and learning (already in middle age) to create respectable wines in a part of Italy that had never produced any before. Fraser describes growing grapes and making wine, the frustrations of operating under the Italian bureaucracy and its legislation, peasant conservatism, and his struggle to introduce more modern ways into the winemaking process.
