"Cathy Huyghe's book is most certainly not a how-to-become-a-wine-connoisseur-in-X-number-of-days, but rather an exploration of what a life that is passionate about wine looks like, feels like and sounds like." -Randall Grahm, Winemaker and Owner, Bonny Doon Vineyard
"Cathy is a master storyteller, she makes us dream of sipping those wines she presents, of visiting those places, of meeting those people. A book that invites you to reflect, while reading it with one hand. Keep a glass of wine in the other." -Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW
"What an opus! Huyghe gives us a real world with real people, dirt, mold, war, economic dislocation. The unexpected -- a rabbit, octopi, a wine cemetery -- and above all, a people whose hearts have been forged in the furnace of life." -Allegra Jordan, Author of The End of Innocence
"Brilliantly written, Hungry for Wine exceeds my expectations in every chapter. It is sincere, refreshing, and significant. Where other writers have failed, Cathy has succeeded in humanizing wine." -Arlene Oliveros, Certified Sommelier, Founder/CEO of World of Wines (WOW), Canada & Philippines
