Kermit’s book changed my thinking about wine. Colorful encounters with larger-than-life personalities, the primacy of the land and authenticity, plus a good dose of humorous anecdotes to keep you entertained. This book deserves to stay in print forever!” — Alice Waters
“One of the finest American books on wine.” — Eric Asimov, The New York Times

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
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
Kermit once said...
For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
