Slave to the Vine: Confessions of a Vagabond Cellarhand
Slave to the Vine: Confessions of a Vagabond Cellarhand is a story of heartbreak and reinvention. By fleeing his job and hometown to work the wine harvest at a famous, remote vineyard on the Sonoma Coast, a divorced thirtysomething learns to close the door on his past and grow in the agrarian face of new challenges. In the company of wine, women, and wildlife, he thrives amid a battle of winemaking egos and mountain folk on the quest to make the best Pinot Noir on the planet. Slave to the Vine is a tannic testament to the American dream.
