“For years Andrew Jefford has been one of the English language’s most thoughtful writers and stylists on wine… original and provocative, though not at all a provocateur… Mr. Jefford is a poet, and he’s far more interested in the poetry of wine — the transporting thoughts and dreamlike reveries it induces — than in the technical details… A pleasure to read.” Eric Asimov – The New York Times
“Jefford’s essays are like that glass of wine at day’s end – restorative, uplifting and enlightening.” Dave McIntyre – Washington Post
“A tumble of short stories, it reveals the kaleidoscope landscape of a staggeringly beautiful, complex mind, reflecting a staggeringly beautiful, complex world.” Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com
