Revue de presse :

Patrick Moon, who inherited his neglected and remote house in the Languedoc region of southern France, writes with flair ... He is befriended by Virgile, a young local winemaker, who offers to teach him everything he knows about wine-making from the field to the cellar. The result is a fascinating seasonal tour (Daily Mail)

Patrick Moon finds himself living in one of the world's "happening" wine places and there are, as there must be in this sort of book, a good bunch of locals. Unlike the usual enthusiastic refugees from the north, Moon conducts himself with a mixture of surprise and reluctance. Like the wine, everything flows richly and generously from there (Sunday Times)

Rather superior and enjoyably informative ... Moon follows the progress of Virgile, a dedicated if penurious young wine-maker. Manu, a rarely sober producer of the old vinegary school, provides comic relief. In his roundabout way, Moon conveys a host of information about this fascinating corner of France and its main product (Independent)

Full of interesting characters and a fresh view on a fast-evolving region from an outsider who loves wine and is prepared to learn why one bottle, vineyard or estate differs so dramatically from another (Wine Magazine)

When Moon inherits a house in the Languedoc, he has no idea it will lead to a crash course in wine-making and a hilarious introduction to French hospitality ... The story is in turns funny, moving and instructional, with a wisdom that rises from every chapter and glassful. A delightful journal of calamity and discovery (Good Book Guide)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Among the rich cast of characters he meets during his year of exploration is Virgile, a young local wine-maker who offers to initiate Patrick into the mysteries of each season's work in the fields and in the cellar. Virgile is passionately committed to perfection, though he operates on a shoestring.

At the other extreme is Manu, Patrick's dipsomaniac neighbour, a diehard traditionalist producing a private wine-lake of unspeakable rouge. With Manu as his self-appointed guide, Patrick embarks on a tour of the region's wine makers - a succession of lively encounters with growers as varied as the wines themselves. Interwoven are digressions into the history of the region and its wine-making, from the earliest plantings by the Greeks and Romans.

Meanwhile, the author struggles to deal with his dilapidated inheritance - an unfamiliar and unpredictable world where the brambles have grown as tall as the olive trees, the water supply has just dried up and there is a ferocious animal under the roof tiles.
