A fine example of armchair travel. Not only could I virtually feel the baking heat of a long summer in the vineyards of the Lot, but I also learned a huge amount about the wines of the Cahors appellation, as well as traditional, small-scale methods of French viniculture. Now if only the author had done a similar book for the wines of Bordeaux, I'd be all set for my trip to Southwest France this fall. ( )

Great read about three wine-making families in the Cahors region of SW France; helped me to understand the importance of old-fashioned methods of wine-making, and the passion required to stick to them. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060559659, Paperback)

Author Michael Sanders spent two years in the vineyards of southwest France with three families whose destinies are determined each year, every year, by the soil, the weather, and the quality of the grape, and shared with them the hopes of spring, the anguish of summer drought, and the mad rush of the fall harvest. In Families of the Vine, he offers a vivid, heartfelt portrait of these authentic winemakers in a fascinating, intensely human saga of strength, dedication, and savoir faire. Though their wines may differ, they all share a powerful, uncompromising passion for the timeless craft that defines them.
