Reviews

"[Corkscrewed] inspires thirst and curiosity... Mr. Camuto's adventures will introduce readers to little-known French wines like Domaine Borrely-Martin of Provence, Chateau Mosse of Roussillon and Domaine des Tres Cantous of Gaillac and to the passionate individuals that persevere despite the absence of monetary reward. These may not be the wines that earn one spurs as a connoisseur, but they certainly may produce a worthy sense of humility at how much there is to learn. I can't wait to drink them." Eric Asimov, New York Times, Dining & Wine section "Camuto's lighthearted book is a particularly enjoyable read that chronicles the author's journey through French wine country in a scrumptious collection of stories about wine, food, vineyards and wine-makers." Beth Hiser Bloomsbury Review
