Customer Review

on 31 August 2007
I enjoyed Patrick Moon's first book, Virgile's Vineyard, about his efforts to learn about winemaking in the Languedoc after being left a property by his uncle.
This book takes the (true) story a stage further, as Patrick returns to the Languedoc to explore the region further and use his winemaking contacts as an in to some of the region's top restaurants.
On the way, he finds out more about indigenous food production, such as the wonderfully-named Pascal Poot and his Conservatoire des Tomates high in the hills.
If you love France, food and wine, this is a glorious soap opera about life in a beautiful part of the country. I'm amazed it and its predecessor haven't been snapped up for a TV series yet.
I've read both books during holidays in France and loved being able to go out the next day and find wines and cheeses, etc, that had been mentioned in the text.
Bon Appetit!
