Format: Paperback
Anyone, ranging from a wine professional, enthusiast, home winemaker or a person just interested in another aspect of Washington State history, will find this book full of insight into the beginnings and future of the world class wines of Washington, the land it is grown in and the past and present players involved. It is told in large part by the leading scientist who helped create the industry in Washingon. While at times clumsy due to its occasional stringing together of anectodal passages, the book remains essential to those wishing to learn more about one of the recognized emerging areas in the world for the growing of premium grapes and the resulting production of fine wines.

Format: Paperback
The Wine Project is deceptive. It is more than just about wine and a place, although it faithfully provides that. It is also about time, about how we experience time. The authors use the present to talk about the past, to bring the past into the immediate present. The Wine Project chronicles the life-effort of co-author Dr. Walter J. Clore to convince farmers in eastern Washington state that they could grow the right grapes and produce distinctive, world-class wines. It is a mystery, a triller. It is good history. It is a good read! And your life will be changed forever as you fall in love with the scientist, Dr. Clore. And, as you feel the excitement of the authors as they find connections in their everyday life to the past. As the co-author I am always amazed to pick up the book and read a chapter, and wonder at the way it reads. You will like it. Let me know if you do, or don't. This review written by co-author, Ronald Irvine.

The Wine Project is a well written and researched book. It appeared Mr. Irvine enjoyed his subject. As with the development of many industries, there is usually someone behind the scenes who was instrumental to the success of that industry and is only known within that industry. Dr. Clore, Mr. Irvine's collaborator is that person. For anyone interested in the history and development of the Washington wine industry this is a book that needed to be written and needs to be read.

I enjoyed a local telephone conversation with Ron regarding his research on the 'Island Belle' grape stock. My personal interest in this variety dates back years, when my uncle cultivated the "Island Belle" and sold to a local NW Washington winery. His informative and helpful suggestions sold me on buying this book.
