Summary
"There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world--from altesse to zierfandler--but 80 percent of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes. In Godforsaken Grapes, Jason Wilson looks at how that came to be and embarks on a journey to discover what we miss. Stemming from his own growing obsession, Wilson moves far beyond the "noble grapes," hunting down obscure and underappreciated wines from Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, France, Italy, the United States, and beyond. In the process, he looks at why these wines fell out of favor (or never gained it in the first place), what it means to be obscure, and how geopolitics, economics, and fashion have changed what we drink. A combination of travel memoir and epicurean adventure, Godforsaken Grapes is an entertaining love letter to wine."--provided by Amazon.com
Summary
There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world-from auxerrois, blaufrankisch, and carmenere to xinomavro, yellow muscat and zierfandler - but 80% of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes. In 'Godforsaken Grapes,' food and wine expert and travel writer Jason Wilson looks at how that came to be and takes the reader on a passionate, wide-ranging journey through the other 98% of wine grapes.
