We join Ralph Steadman on his journey around the world to different countries, looking for wine. He walks on the dirt track leading to vineyards, watches grape being crushed and savors them in a glass. The writeup is excellent and detailed, looking into the life of people in the business of making wine.
The wonderful illustrations are a bonus, and complementary. It makes the reading so much more enjoyable.
Highly recommended to people who likes reading travel journals or loves wine.

look at the world of wine by a guy with a truly enviable

funny as the drawings contains a good bit of information
along with the humor. I bought two copies, one for
the bookshelf and one to cut up and frame in the

on a shelf!
