From Chile to California, South Africa to Alsace, Ralph Steadman has seen the best of the world’s wine-producing regions.

On a search for the unique and original, he meets Aurelio Montes, the Chilean winemaker who planted Syrah vines on a rocky, south-facing hill in order to "steal the wild complexity of the mountain’s soul." In Spain he learns of the white chalky soil called albariza that produces the sherry of the Jerez region. In California, the author describes crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, driving up into Marin County, and meeting enthusiastic winemakers whose vineyards sit precariously on the San Andreas Fault. As the journey continues, on through Burgundy, Champagne and Sicily, Steadman brings the landscape and its people to life with pictures and prose.
