Description

AN UP-CLOSE AND PERSONAL insight into 10 of Europe’s most celebrated winemaking families that chronicles their triumphs, trials and tribulations through successive generations.

Not just any wine families: the likes of Frescobaldi, Gaja, Torres, Perrin, Niepoort, Knoll and Torres, known and revered across the world. Fiona Morrison was welcomed into the homes of each (with her photographer) and was able to capture the ‘behind the scenes’ excitement of winemaking in the kind of vivid detail impossible to achieve in a magazine article.

A must-read for any wine lover, Fiona offers both intimate portraits and topical insights, as she raises questions about climate change, globalization, how to make a family business commercial, organic trends, and the tricky business of inheritance tax.

"Fiona Morrison Thienpont has written a book from a viewpoint no other writer, as far as I know, has ever possessed: a seat at the heart of the action." - Hugh Johnson

The Producer

Academie du Vin Library

Our aim at the Académie du Vin Library is to bring you the very best wine writing of the past, the present and the future. Some of our books are undisputed classics – refreshed for today’s reader but without losing any of the charm, or wisdom, of a more innocent time. Our new titles are, we believe, destined to become the classics of the future: easy to read, easy on the eye, and all with something new and important to say.

We like to think of ourselves not just as publishers and booksellers, but as a community of wine lovers, united by a passion for learning more about what makes the wine world so special. We hope you will join us. Happy reading!
