I’ll Drink to That: Beaujolais and the French Peasant Who Made It the World’s Most Popular Wine
Rudolph Chelminski (au)
Every third week of November, wine shops around the world announce that the year’s batch of Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived, and in a few weeks over 7 million bottles have been sold. This book transports you to a corner of France where the smallholder peasants who made Beaujolais wines on their farms battled against the contempt of the entrenched Burgundy and Bordeaux establishment. At the heart of this story is winegrower Georges Duboeuf, whose rise as the undisputed king of Beaujolais reads like a combination of suspenseful biography and armchair travel. “Paints a portrait of the inhabitants of a little-known corner of France, offering a witty, panoramic view of the history of French winemaking.” Color photos.
