I find the book interesting since I am interested in all the grapes used in winemaking. Most wine lovers know three, possibly four or five grapes, but there are many more to learn. It is a factual book about odd grapes with a rich history. A fantastic piece of work is behind this book. It should be in every wine lover's library.
