Passion on the Vine


Product Description
Product Details


"Without qualification, the best book about Italian wine today, if only because Sergio Esposito understands that its mysterious greatness is in its poetry--the earth, its diurnal magic, the ghosts of great-grandfathers. A beautiful, boldly sentimental memoir."
--Bill Buford

""Passion on the Vine" is a spellbinding memoir; a vivid, funny, and, yes, passionate tale of family, food, and wine. The tour de force chapter on his childhood in Naples will make your wish you were Italian. Sergio Esposito is not only a great epicurean--he's also a great storyteller. If he ever gets tired of selling wine he's got a bright future as a writer."
--Jay McInerney

"Esposito's glass is always half-full, when not filled to the brim, and always with something beautifully red and swirling and passionate, as are his words in this wine-adventure, story-memoir. His words are like the vines he so ardently writes about--earthy, deep-rooted; and the wines--perfect on the tongue, with a long finish."
--Frances Mayes

"Do not read this book on an empty stomach....A charming tribute to food, drink, and homeland."
--"Kirkus Reviews
