About this product
- DescriptionFrom the hills of Napa to the mountain slopes of Tuscany, author Nick Wise went in search of great wine and famous people who are also winemakers. His astonishing trip, the wines he tasted and the incredible people he met are recounted in loving and often humorous detail in this fully illustrated new book. Nick Wise journeyed to Central and Northern California and interviewed winemakers including film director Francis Ford Coppola and the Walt Disney family. In Canada, he interviewed actor Dan Ackroyd and in the hills of Tuscany, world-rewned composer Ludovico Einaudi. He also visited Spain where he toured Anta Banderas, the winery of actor Antonio Banderas. He includes an opening essay on America's first vintner, Thomas Jefferson, whose Monticello estate is still producing wine from the grapes that the third President of America planted over 200 years ago. The story of Nick's journey through wine country is filled with adventure, new discoveries, amazing people and, most important, brilliant wines (and some t so brilliant). Written for fans of wine, travel and the rich and famous, Celebrity Vineyards is a fascinating journey into a world that, for most of us, is only a dream.
