'Delicious.' I licked my lips. The wine filled me with joy. A picture of a vineyard drenched in sunlight formed in my mind. Sean drew me rudely back to the lounge of our semi-d. 'How can they be in li... quidation if they make wine this good?' When Caro and Sean find the perfect ten-hectare vineyard in Saussignac, it seems their dreams of becoming wine-makers in the south of France are about to come true. But they arrive in France with their young family (a toddler and a newborn) to be faced with a dilapidated eighteenth-century farmhouse and an enterprise that may never, ever make them a living. Undeterred by mouse infestations, a leaking roof, treacherous hordes of insects, visits from the local farm 'police' and a nasty accident with an agricultural trimmer, Caro and Sean set about transforming their 'beyond eccentric' winery into a successful business as they embark on the biggest adventure of their lives learning to make wine from the roots up. AUTHOR: Caro Feely is a certified wine educator that writes part time from the organic vineyard and wine school in France that she owns and runs with her husband Sean. Part Irish, part South African and now part French she is passionate about wine and life. Caro grew up on a sugar cane farm and spent fifteen years working as a business and IT consultant with multinationals like IBM and Accenture before following her dream to make wine in France. SELLING POINTS: Stunning, evocative descriptions of the wine making process and the final product will make you want to out and buy your own vineyard! Will appeal to Francophiles, wine lovers and anyone who has ever dreamed of moving abroad
