A Vineyard in Tuscany: A Wine Lover's Dream
In this humorous, poignant narrative, named a New York Times Notable Book, Ferenc Máté chronicles unbelievable adventures in the most romantic region on Earth: Tuscany. Ferenc and his wife Candace pursue their dream by transforming an abandoned thirteenth-century friary and 70 acres of hills and waterfalls into an internationally acclaimed winery, producing one of the world’s great wines—Brunello di Montalcino. Not only do they plant fifteen acres of vines, discover an Etruscan city buried in their woods, and uncover wine-making secrets from master vintner (and neighbor) Angelo Gaja, but they relish the joys of a new life, far from the one they left behind. This updated edition includes 16 pages of color photographs of the Máté restoration project, winery, and vineyards.
