Product Details


“Easy to read and engaging…I, for one, am eager for another volume on life in Burgundy.”
—Eric Asimov, The New York Times
“Wine lovers, Francophiles and anyone who roots for dreamers will want to raise a glass to Ray Walker.”
“Walker is a deft writer; as with the wines of his beloved destination, a light touch makes for a more engaging product. . . . riveting reading. But the human side, especially the thoroughly French characters and Walker’s saintly spouse, makes this an engaging account for anyone to savor on the patio or by the fireplace—a glass of wine optional, but recommended.”
Minneapolis Star Tribune

“An intoxicating tale…Mr. Walker’s story is sure to inspire a few more leaps of faith.”
The Economist
“Completely disarming…utterly charming writing voice…If Ray Walker is the new face of winemaking…let the counter-reformation begin.”
The Oregonian

“An appealing success story and a wide-eyed homage to Burgundy.”
Kirkus Reviews

“In this rich account, Walker chronicles his five-year journey from Northern California to the French countryside with self-deprecating humor and earnestness. . . . Wine geeks will enjoy Walker’s blow-by-blow account of the winemaking process. Those less inclined to appreciate wine’s back story can revel in his descriptions of Burgundy’s food and lifestyle. Walker’s tale evokes the exquisite thrill of finding and following your passion, no matter how crazy it might seem.”
Publishers Weekly
“Walker’s energy and warmth lift this book.”
“The main appeal is the amazing story of how someone was able to realize his seemingly farfetched dream.”
New York Journal of Books
“True oenophiles will love it. . . . a great summer read.”
“Readers who share his passion for fine wine will be entertained by his detailed descriptions.”
