Ill-DrinkTo-That-Beaujolais-Rudolph-Chelminski

I'll Drink To That - Beaujolais, Rudolph Chelminski

This book weaves together the singular story of Beaujolais, its region, people and lifestyle, recounting its rise from a much-slandered poor man’s quaff to becoming the most popular wine in France and, indeed, during a dizzying period of unexpected prosperity, the world over. This is not only the story of a wine but of an entire region and its people. At the heart of the story is the peasant vintner named Georges Duboeuf, whose progress from obscurity to his present position as the undisputed king of Beaujolais combines lively biography with luscious armchair travel.
