Présentation de l'éditeur

"Frost can be fatal to a fledgling wine business... gorgeous glitter with a high price tag. On a winter’s day it is beautiful, but on a spring day after bud burst it spells devastation."

For Sean and Caro Feely, a couple whose love affair with wine and France has taken them through financial and physical struggle to create their organic vineyard, it could spell the end. Until they receive an unexpected call that could save their skins…

This book is about life, love and taking risks, while transforming a piece of land into a flourishing vineyard and making a new life in France.

HASH(0x9b139ccc) étoiles sur 5 The Story Continues... 29 juillet 2014
Par Leslie M. Ficcaglia - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having read Caro's first book, "Grape Expectations," I was anxious to read the sequel and bought it as soon as it was available. In "Saving Our Skins" Caro continues the story of her and her husband's resuscitation of an old vineyard in the Saussignac appelation of Southern France, while at the same time raising two little girls and madly scrambling for enough money to cover the costs of failing equipment and unexpected disasters. I was very happy to see that all of their hard work seems to be paying off. As was her first book, this is well-written and offers a sense of immediacy to the reader; one feels that he is there, with them, biting nails and hoping that everything will work out after all. As I wrote in my review of "Grape Expectations," I know the area she writes about because we have friends in the Dordogne whom we visit, and we also stopped at a nearby winery on our last trip to France, so it was especially fun to read about her trips to Saussignac and Bergerac. It was also fascinating to read about the Feelys' growing integration into the wine-growing community and the respect that they have garnered due to their hard work and ever-developing expertise. All in all, a book I recommend to anyone who loves France, loves wine, or simply loves a good story about the challenges faced by a family when they try to change their lives.

I had a hard time reading this book. I found the writing and the language to be poor. It does not say if this book was translated so I am not sure if the book was written badly in English or translated badly. I also found that the author to be a little whiny, distracted and preachy. After being lectured about the benefits of organic and biodynamic again and again I was tempted to go out and eat some fast food. I did learn a few new things about wine in France. I enjoy France, Wine and travel but I did not enjoy reading about any of them in this book.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

Again thank you so much for this book!! The follow up book in no way disappoints, except that now I have to wait for yet another book to cover their latest years or....just go visit! And that is exactly what I will do March of 2015! I absolutely loved the second book--more info about who they are, how to take care of wine vines organically & biodynamically, to begin & flourish in the tourist business with their tours & classes, still manage to be in their relationship/marriage, raise their 2 girls & be a part of an amazing, cooperative & supportive community! In awe! Thx!

Following on from My Grape Expectations, Caro's first book about the early years setting up their organic vineyard, this is another great memoir written from the heart. With regulations, bureaucracy, weather and other things sent to try the patience of a saint, life isn’t always easy for Caro and her husband Sean who often seem to be living on the edge and following the fine line between coping and disaster. However, little by little they start to see the signs that their hard work and determination (which they seem to have in bucketfuls) is paying off. It is an uncomfortable read in places, but sharing the bad as well as the good meant I felt their excitement when there were things to celebrate. There is no doubt they have established a name for themselves in the industry and winning the wine tourism awards was a fantastic achievement.

Caro’s passion for their organic lifestyle meant this book was not only entertaining but informative too. If you are in anyway concerned or interested in the safety and quality of the food you eat and going organic, this book will enlighten and educate, without preaching. She certainly made me sit up, take note and left me determined to make a few changes little and often about what goes into my basket. According to Caro, vintners in France are heavier users of toxic chemicals than the farmers and many of the products they use recommend staying out of the vineyard for 48 hours after usage. This really grabbed at my attention and more so when she explains that grapes are not washed before being crushed and made into wine. The first farmer in France to have his illness officially linked to the use of pesticides and chemicals was a winegrower who sadly died of his leukaemia. Caro also talks about the apple farmer in her village who openly admits to NEVER eating his own fruit because of the chemicals he uses on them.

Reading Caro’s book has led me to search out organic products and I'm happy I’m not only making good choices for my family but also doing my bit to support the organic farmers like Caro and Sean.

I was sent me a copy of this book by the publisher Summersdale to read and review.

I didn't read her earlier book but didn't find that necessary. This is a well written account and I learned a lot, not only about the wine business and vineyards, but also about Feely. I look forward to more from her! Thanks NETGALLEY!
