Few transformations are as intriguing as that of a grape into wine. Vine to Bottle is a unique account of the energy, passion, and expertise that go into the production of a wine. The author and photographer visited two winemakers -- a traditional small-scale producer in Burgundy and a large, industrial-scale producer in the south of France -- at key periods throughout the year of the 2000 vintage. Inspirational and revealing, this is a personal yet comprehensive tale of the winemaking process, from pruning in the vineyard to harvesting and winemaking.
