Not yet rated | write a review
In 1973, against the advice of experts and the experience of history, Louisa Hargrave and her husband, Alex, bought a run-down 1680-vintage potato farm on Long Island''s North Fork and planted ten thousand European wine grapes. Having begun her grape- growing adventure with the arrogance of youth and the assumption that she and her husband could figure it all out themselves, she was both humbled and transformed by the land, by her children, and by the generosity of those who helped along the way. At once wry and heartwarming, this is an odyssey as much about spirit and the connection to place as it is about the simple pleasures of a new wine.

Editorial Reviews

This is really a book about love -- love of family, love of a region, and love of wine. (Kevin Zraly, author of "Windows on the World Wine Course") Good women and good writing ripen like fine wine, and Hargrave combines the three in this tender and truthful memoir. (Laura Shaine Cunningham, author of "Sleeping Arrangements" and "A Place in the Country")
