Kermit’s book changed my thinking about wine. Colorful encounters with larger-than-life personalities, the primacy of the land and authenticity, plus a good dose of humorous anecdotes to keep you entertained. This book deserves to stay in print forever!” — Alice Waters
“One of the finest American books on wine.” — Eric Asimov, The New York Times

“I am simply thrilled by [Adventures on the Wine Route]. I am bowled over by [Kermit Lynch’s] blend of poetry and candour. What heaven-sent common sense.” — Hugh Johnson
Clark Terry's Pick
If you don't follow the wine press, I will forgive and let you in on a secret: Kermit's book is always on the list of best wine books to give as a gift. A bottle of wine from KLWM and this book; that's a perfect gift!
Nearly all wine books are written by experts whose intention is primarily to inform or to educate. They give little aesthetic pleasure. Kermit Lynch is certainly an expert, but his book, Adventures on the Wine Route, is also a great pleasure to read. I enjoyed it more than any other wine book I have read. - Roald Dahl
