Salt & Old Vines

A real taste of winemaking - true stories about a wine, the people who make it and the place it's made by Richard W H Bray

Review for Salt & Old Vines

Being familiar with the Banyuls area the author writes about, I was curious to see if he captures the atmosphere of that relatively unspoilt part of France. Having read excerpts on Enotourist and Unbound while the book was still raising funds, it was obvious that he does - and he writes with gusto, humour, clarity and descriptions of landscape, wine, and characters so vibrant and alive (and often very funny) that the reader is immediately transported. It's the perfect book to give as a gift - as long as you keep a copy for yourself as well!
