Adventures on the Wine Route

Kermit Lynch

One of the most engaging books on wine published for some years. - Edmund Penning-Rowsell Financial Times

The best read I've encountered in the last few years is the charming Kermit Lynch Adventures on the Wine Route. Lynch travels the wine country as each of us wishes he or she could and writes about it as we wish we could write. Should you be so fortunate as to travel the French wine regions, this book should be your travel guide. If you can't, put it on your bed table for the best nightcap you could enjoy. - Bob Lowe Time Out

A riveting account of one man's pursuit of authenticity as well as excellence in wine...Kermit Lynch's colorful portraits of some idiosyncratic vintners, and his commentaries on their wines, make for some of the finest reading since Joseph Wechsberg ate and drank his way through France in his book Blue Trout and Black Truffles. - Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate

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

I am simply thrilled by it. I am bowled over by his blend of poetry and candour. What heaven-sent common sense. - Hugh Johnson

Quirky, opinionated, maddening, hilarious...riveting, illuminating, totally original...Strongly recommended. - Clive Coates

In Kermit Lynch's small, true, delightful book there is more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read. - Victor Hazan
