“As with rosé, the ultimate fun wine...what counts is atmosphere, wit and of course amusing French people. It's great fun to read, especially if you enjoy sticking you nose into all sorts of little-known corners of France. The Iveys...can't help but enjoy themselves, and so will readers.” ―Eric Asimov, The New York Times' blog, "The Pour"
“A light, entertaining tale.” ―Wine Enthusiast
“Witty escapism for those who enjoy, or enjoy reading about, good wine, good food, and good travel.” ―Library Journal
“Delightfully quirky debut….Full-bodied.” ―Kirkus
“In this carefree, breezy romp through the vineyards of Southern France, Jamie Ivey infuses a simple wine with the beauty of the countryside. Ivey will change the way you think of--and drink--rosé forever.” ―Natalie McLean, James Beard Award-winning publisher of Nat Decants at www.nataliemaclean.com

he meets are hilarious. We are treated to a summer holiday story that starts as a lark. Jamie, his wife and his friend, Peter are scouring French vineyards for the palest rose in France. We learn an astounding amount about French terroir and wine-making in France. We learn about French mores & we see Jamie and Tanya falling in love with Provence. It is a charming travel tale that has a great deal of suspense as we wonder if they will meet the deadline & find the palest rose before harvest. The second story is that Jamie and Tanya are disenchanted
with their life in London & yearn to find a way to make a living in Provence. One does not want the book to end and knowing that there are
3 more sequels is a great consolation. I loved these people and their story!
