I was lucky and theinstruction I received over many French lunches and dinners opened my eyes to thecomplexities of fine wine and how the choice of the right wine for a particular dishelevates the experience from mere grazing to hedonistic delights.I wanted to learn more about wine and decided to go and make the vendange in whit isarguably one of the finest areas of wine in the world - the Haut Médoc - north ofBordeaux. What started as a one off visit turned into an annual pilgrimage coveringseven years during which I found out everything I wanted to about the subject.Vendange isnt though a dry book about the wine making process - more a collection ofanecdotes gathered in my pannier along the way. It started in the autumn of 1979 andfinished in 1986 and during that time, the wine industry changed forever. I was luckyenough to witness the changes.What some reviewers say:-Reading these stories brightened by life and lifted my spirit Barbara GoldenAt first, I wasnt sure what to expect. Its very hard to find good short storiesbut Im glad I found this. Terrific! John AsgardIll never drink the same again!!! Brian C. Smith
