Adventures on the Wine Route

“Wine is, above all, pleasure. Those who would make it ponderous make it dull,” declares wine importer Lynch in this robustly irreverent account of his quest through France in search of wine. If you own only one book on wine, this is it.

When Adventures on the Wine Route was first published, Victor Hazan said, "In Kermit Lynch's small, true, delightful book there is more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read." A quarter century later, this remarkable journey of wine, travel, and taste remains an essential volume for wine lovers. In 2007, Eric Asimov, in The New York Times, called it "one of the finest American books on wine," and in 2012, The Wall Street Journal pro-claimed that it "may be the best book on the wine business."
