2.0 étoiles sur 5 informative but needs polish 23 juin 2014

A very informative book about making wine in a specific French appellation told autobiographically. I wish the author drew us in more. Made us care about him more. Made us care about the success or risks of the vineyards more. Instead it read as a bit of a dry journal.

This book is a great read for anyone who wants to understand what winemaking is really like. This book takes you behind the scenes of winemaking in the Roussillion through a personal description on what it is like to work in a winery. Richard W. H. Bray tries to take some of the romanticism out of winemaking and tell the reader the real story about how hard it really is to harvest the wine, process it, bottle it and sell it. He tells stories about the people he works with and the people he meets along the way - everyone from the Brazilian bartender who makes really strong Gin & Tonics to the hard working wine picker who breaks is leg while inspecting the wine on the steep hills by the ocean. It was easy for me to picture the scenery, the people and even the smell of wine while reading this book. The book is also a great description of the region where the wine is make that seems to play a big role in what the wine becomes. It almost becomes an ethnography of winemaking. I really needed to get a bottle of the Collioure wine after reading this book, but unfortunately they are not easy to find in my part of the world.

Richard’s book is a very engaging read, perfect for sunny weather when you might consider relaxing in the sun with a good book and a glass of wine to match, as I did. He approaches the subject as a knowledgable professional, but also full of candour, humour and an obvious love for his subject, both wine and the region he makes it in. As he says:

“This is not a wine book, not really. It has quite a lot of wine in it, both made and drunk (…) it is a book of stories…”

The stories, spanning a ‘vintage’, are not your usual collection of wine truisms. They’re personal accounts of busy days and late nights, the characters in and around a winery, and the interconnection between the people, places and nature, whose life-force runs through wine-making regions and we usually only glimpse through the taste of good wine.

Salt & Old Vines is one person’s collection of stories, both personal and handed-down, that bring these wines to life. Stories that identify a wine and region, that make it unique and give it context. They are not the stories of an outside journalist reporting on the work of others, nor are they the story of the winemaker who lives and dies for their wine. They are the rarely told stories of the people behind the arrows in diagrams of how things happen – the team, the crew, the staff that make the vision reality.

Along the way, we get some great images of working in the vineyard in the midday sun, of the Heath Robinson (or Rube Goldberg, depending on your tradition) nature of wine machinery, of Gallic amorous habits, dreadful coffee and plenty of great friendships.

Like the wine poured into many glasses, these stories are what we really can share.

Through these stories we experience Richard’s days of exhaustion, pain, confusion and more than one hangover, but also his local travel observations, his wine-blending triumphs and his vinous thoughts and discoveries. Incidentally, along the way we also learn about wine and the beautiful regions of Banyuls and Collioure in the south of France.

If you simply love drinking wine, like me, then this book should scare you away from ever wanting to make wine, yet make you want to drink it more, … but then simply drinking it may not be enough for you.

In either case I think it is important. I do not like wine less because I don’t want to make it. On the contrary, I love it more because I realise more clearly how hard it is to make, how many people suffer for their passion in order to bring it to us, and because I do not have to do this myself.

In either case I expect you will love this book.
