Revue de presse

'In this beautifully written tale of passion, caution, guts, Caro Feely takes us on her heartfelt journey as she and her husband breathe life into an old Bergerac winery, while she and her husband Sean resuscitate their own.' (Alice Feiring, Author of Naked Wine: Letting Grapes Do What Comes Naturally )

'A must read for anyone who's dreamed of owning their own vineyard, at times gritty, at times joyful, Grape Expectations is an inspiring story of how one couple changed their lives.' --Jamie Ivey, Author of Ten Trees and a Truffle Dog

Présentation de l'éditeur

"‘Delicious.’ I licked my lips. The wine filled me with joy. A picture of a vineyard drenched in sunlight formed in my mind. Sean drew me rudely back to the lounge of our semi-d.

'How can they be in liquidation if they make wine this good?’"

When Caro and Sean find the perfect ten-hectare vineyard in Saussignac, it seems their dreams of becoming wine-makers in the south of France are about to come true. But they arrive in France with their young family (a toddler and a newborn) to be faced with a dilapidated eighteenth-century farmhouse and an enterprise that may never, ever make them a living.

Undeterred by mouse infestations, a leaking roof, treacherous hordes of insects, visits from the local farm ‘police’ and a nasty accident with an agricultural trimmer, Caro and Sean set about transforming their ‘beyond eccentric’ winery into a successful business as they embark on the biggest adventure of their lives – learning to make wine from the roots up.

A real honest account of an adventure courageously grasped and lived through to the bone while remaining absolutely loyal to core values of an organic lifestyle through thick and thin with a lot of self sacrifice. Well written, entertaining, informative. One can only wish that this committed family meets well deserved success one day....

Quel bonheur d'avoir lu ce livre ! Quel dommage qu'il n'existe pas en Français pour que plus de monde puisse le lire ! Je n'ai que deux envies, aller rencontrer Caro et son mari pour goûter leurs vins et lire la suite de ce super roman !

Merci pour ce beau moment de détente

HASH(0x8ba68a38) étoiles sur 5 Perseverance, Pain & Pleasure in Saussignac! 16 décembre 2013
Par Preston Camp - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A couple of years back, my wife Catherine and I and good friends Mark & Barbara rented a house for a month at Thenac, not far from Caro & SF's place. We fell in love with the area and when Caro's book was recommended as a great read by my sister-in-law, I got it straight away. Once into it, I couldn't stop reading as it brought back so many memories. Not just that but feeling the pain and suffering of the Feelys through buying a wreck of a place and persevering where others would have given up, kept me enthralled. It is uncommon for an author of this type of book to be so frank and honest, and have the guts to tell it as it really happened, warts & all - particularly of the personal and intimate aspects of a relationship . The mostly, underlying positivism in the writing, the 'never say die' approach to solving one problem after another, makes it all the more enthralling - so too the discovery of things unknown and their unconcealment - sometimes with huge pleasure (the well) and at other times with dismay (French bureaucratic intransigence.) Yes, a great read,- for wine lovers, dreamers, Francophiles and others.
HASH(0x8ba6881c) étoiles sur 5 What a Story! 5 août 2015

If you have dreams of owning a vineyard in France; this book will make you want to forget it unless you have giant piles of money.

The Feely family decides to chuck their very good careers in London and take their toddler daughter and baby daughter to a wreck of
an old house and overgrown vineyard in France. Caro Feely, the author, who hadn't been to the property was shocked by what a disaster the house was.
Her husband who had visited remarked that it looked worse than he remembered.

Years of backbreaking work and worries upon worries almost wreck their marriage and turn their dreams into nightmares.
After awhile the constant struggle became tedious and painful and I couldn't wait for it to end. Too many worries and too much suffering. The reason for the high rating is because of the honesty and clarity of the writing.

Just finished your book - inspirational, heartwarming and a pure joy for this francophile. (I confess to a few tears).
I'm inspired to "go organic" and am looking forward to visiting as soon as possible.
Sincere thanks,

Thank you for this book!! It's long been on my bucket list to work in or at least visit a small organic vineyard, preferably in Europe (I'm from USA). I'm a gardener by trade &, of course, my season is the same as the vineyards. However, after this book literally jumped off the shelf at me, I've decided that, not only do I have to visit Terroir Feely Vineyard, but I so look forward to meeting the author & her family, even tho, due to Caro's style writing, I feel like I already know them & even the vines! I loved how honest the book is portraying all aspects of making a move like that to follow ones' dreams--the ups & downs, ins & outs, crazy their commitment to it all! For me as a gardener I learned so much about organic biodynamic growing, tending the vines & also the standard to which the government in France makes growers adhere to to be able to bottle & sell their wine--not easy but impressive. Looking forward to the second book which I just bought also!
