Publisher Comments:

“An engaging memoir.”—Gerald Asher, author of Vineyard Tales and former wine columnist for Gourmet magazine

How one mans wine-tasting tour of France became a story of discovery, adventure, and brotherhood

Roy Cloud had worked in the wine business for years, watching it transform from a retail backwater to a mainstream fixation, with a huge influx of consumers looking for wine with terroir. By a twist of fate, he found himself on a hurriedly arranged trip to France to persuade small-scale winemaking farms that he should represent their interests in the growing U.S. import market. While Roys palate would be challenged in finding the hidden gems of the Loire Valley and Burgundy, his real dilemma was this: He didnt speak a word of French.

Enter Joe, Roys older brother. Different from Roy in every respect, Joe had studied in France and was fluent in the language—and, most importantly, he was free to join Roy in his search. It was simple: Roy would do the tasting, and Joe would do the talking. What could go wrong?

In To Burgundy and Back Again, Roy presents a richly evocative account of their journey—one replete with discovery, adventure, and poignant surprises. Written in the tradition of A Year in Provence and Sideways, this elegantly penned book will delight wine lovers and armchair travelers alike.
