4.0 out of 5 stars Good holiday read, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Road to Burgundy: The Unlikely Story of an American Making Wine and a New Life in France (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed this book. Its a Field (or is that vineyard?) of Dreams story that is quite inspirational.

Lightly told, the book is packed full of anecdotes around the kindness of strangers and the value of having a true passion for wine. It is entertaining and informative if you know little of Burgundy or the challenges of wine creation. Its also a good insight into the challenges of succeeding in France.

Why not five stars?

Well, its obvious from the flyleaf that Ray succeeded so that took away some of the suspense. The end is a bit rushed / lacks some detail and the stories around the more significant characters are left a bit open.

But if you are a dreamer, like wine and want an inspirational read - its my pleasure to recommend this book.
