Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Search for Wine with Soul Kermit Lynch is my hero for being one of the first writers to search for wine with soul. In his book, Adventures Along the Wine Route, the Californian wine merchant takes us down the back roads of France, through small vineyards and into cobwebbed cellars to discover some of the greatest wines in the world.

About the Author

In 1972 Kermit Lynch opened a retail wine shop and later began importing and distributing nationally. In 2000 he was named Wine Professional of the Year by the James Beard Foundation, in 1998 the French government presented him with the Ordre de Mérite Agricole award, and in 2005 named him Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur. His book, Adventures on the Wine Route, won the Veuve Clicquot Wine Book of the Year award, and is still in print 21 years later. His second book, Inspiring Thirst, was published in 2004.

Editorial Reviews

"One of the pleasantest and truest books about wine I’ve ever read." --M. F. K. Fisher

"Nearly all wine books are written by experts whose intention is primarily to inform or to educate. They give little aesthetic pleasure. Kermit Lynch is certainly an expert, but his book, Adventures on the Wine Route, is also a great pleasure to read. In Kermit Lynch’s small, true, delightful book there is more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read." --Victor Hazan

. Kermit Lynch’s colorful portraits of some idiosyncratic vintners, and his commentaries on their wines, make for some of the finest reading since Joseph Wechsberg ate and drank his way through France in his book Blue Trout and Black Truffles.”--Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate
