A glass of wine and a beautiful sunset

Following up on his first memoir, Hills of Tuscany, Ferenc Mate has chronicled his catching the wine making bug. A Vineyard in Tuscany tells of the hunt for land to plant a vineyard and then some how making an overgrown hillside fullfill your dreams.

I enjoyed the first book, but the second is even better. Mate really had me smiling as I read about his trials and tribulations whether it was trying to run a tricky tractor or battle with his old neighbor. (the manure was a nice touch. LOL)

The coup de grace is that his wine dream has produced some very highly recieved vintages. Now I just want a bottle to sip while rereading the book!
