  • Summary:

    The chronicles of the origins, life, and terroir of a family of Burgundy vintners as told by a young man’s conversations with his grandfather.
    Fred Bernard’s graphic novel tells his tale through the eyes and experiences of his ninety year old grandfather who was born into the business and dedicated his life to Burgundian wines. It is an enlightening story of land, ancestry, passion and family inheritance.
    A true “feel-good book” where the reader shares the author’s anecdotes of his grandfather’s life and experiences as a Burgundian and member of this family of vintners.
    The varieties of grapes and wines in the region, the labs where blends are made, war and resistance, the special relationship that the people have with their land and their wine, the changes that have taken place over the last century… all of this is described and told through illustrated short stories. This is not an academic work or technical
    hand book on wine but a journey through Burgundy, wine and wine families where the reader shares a lifestyle rather than learns a business.
