Overview

Motivated by his passion for all things wine, Larry Horne has written a rich and colourful memoir that documents his exploits as a wine collector, winemaker, grape grower and – in his second career – sales manager for Calamus Estate Winery.

Wine has been the basis for Horne’s many international travels with his wife and wine-drinking partner, Alice Bannon. They have travelled to five continents in search of the ultimate wine-tasting experience, and these adventures figure prominently in his memoir.
