When a military recruiter comes to town, Josep and his friends are put through an unusual training regime that turns out to be something quite different from what all expected, which forces Josep to flee to southern France. There he spends years working under and studying a French vintner’s methods, learning all about the subtle influences that affect the taste of wine.
When Josep eventually returns to his village, he no longer wants to follow his father’s path of growing grapes to make vinegar. His dream is to use all of his entrepreneurial instincts to make fine Spanish wine. All the while addressing a troubled relationship with his older brother, a budding interest in a nearby widow, and figuring out what love is all about.
If you want to learn a lot about winemaking this book is for you. Otherwise, I’d recommend another Noah Gordon’s book, THE PHYSICIAN, which I found much more interesting and rich a piece of historical fiction.
What made me "click" on this novel at that day is its subject. I am a fan of wine and its history and winemaking. But I found much more in this novel. As I said, it's totally not my genre, (just the subject), but somehow I found it's difficult to put this book away until I gulped it to the end! What a pleasant surprise! What a discovery! I loved it.
