    Iconic account of the Rhone ranger through his articles written in various magazines and his reflections as he compiled them for this book Throughly enjoyed reading these articles and Randall s opinions which I mostly share his sharp and biting wit and prickly humor make for an engaging viewpoint on the current state of wine and the wine industry Much to the dismay of many of the big wine producers who would probably be happy if Randall just disappeared into the grapescape.

    For Wine Geeks and lovers of Bonny Doon Open mind a must Familiarity with obscure and not so obscure literary works very helpful That said, I m a long time fan of Randall Grahm and a wine instructor I loved it

    This is a great coffee table book, and an even better book if you get insider jokes about wine and enjoy singing wine themed songs.
