In 2007, Eric Asimov, in The New York Times, referred to as it "one of the best American books on wine," and in 2012, The Wall highway magazine pro-claimed that it "may be the simplest e-book at the wine business."

In get together of its twenty-fifth anniversary, Adventures at the Wine direction has been completely redesigned and up to date with an epilogue and an inventory of the good wine connoisseur's twenty-five so much memorable bottles. during this singular travel alongside the French wine course, Lynch ventures forth to discover the very essence of the wine global. In doing so, he by no means shies clear of the attitudes, evaluations, and ideology that experience made him considered one of our most beneficial and outspoken specialists on wine. but his guiding philosophy is exquisitely easy. As he writes within the advent, "Wine is, mainly, approximately excitement. those that make it ponderous make it boring . . . in the event you retain an open brain and take every one wine by itself phrases, there's a global of magic to discover." Adventures at the Wine direction is the last word quest for this magic through France's such a lot individual vineyards and wine cellars. Lynch attracts brilliant photographs of vintners—from drunk négociants to a guy who oversees a winery that has been in his family members for 5 hundred years—and memorably conjures up the geographical region at each flip. "The French," Lynch writes, "with their aristocratic background, their adventure and culture, procedure wine from one other viewpoint . . . and one can't have fun with French wine with any intensity of figuring out with out realizing how the French themselves examine their wines, via going to the resource, descending into their chilly, humid cellars, tasting with them, and hearing the language they hire to explain their wines."

Here, Kermit Lynch assures a complete new iteration of readers—as good as his dependable fans—that discussions approximately wine needn't concentration so stringently on "the pH, the oak, the physique, the finish," yet relatively at the "gaiety" of how "the tart fruit perfume[s] the palate and the brain."
