The Road to Burgundy: The Unlikely Story of an American Making Wine and a New Life in France Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An intoxicating memoir of an American who discovers a passion for French wine and gambles everything to chase a dream of owning a vineyard in Burgundy 

Ray Walker had a secure career in finance until a wine-tasting vacation ignited a passion he couldnt stifle. He quit his job and moved to France to start a winery—with little money, limited command of the French language, and no winemaking experience. He immersed himself in the extraordinary history of Burgundys vineyards and began honing his skills. Ray shares his journey to secure the regions most coveted grapes. The Road to Burgundy is a glorious celebration of finding ones true path in life and taking a chance—whatever the odds.

About the Author

Ray Walker lives with his wife, Christian, and their two daughters, Isabella Ilan and Siena Jesline, in Burgundy, France.
