Summary
"Etienne Davodeau is a comic artist. He doesn't know much about the world of wine-making. Richard Leroy is a wine-maker. He's rarely even read comics. But these two are full of good will and curiosity. Why do we choose to spend one's life writing and creating comics or producing wine? How and for whom do we do them? To answer these questions, for more than a year, Etienne went to work in Richard's vineyards and cellar. Richard, in return, leapt into the world of comics. They opened a lot of bottles and read many comics. They traveled around, meeting authors and wine-makers sharing their passion for their jobs. The first time a book explores the nature of a man's vocation with a true life representation of it from two very different perspectives. They get to realize they both have that precious and necessary power to bring people together" -- from publisher's web site

Summary
A graphic novel that explores the nature of one's vocation, this book offers a look at the daily devotion to craft in two dissimilar professions. Etienne Davodeau is a comic artist; he doesn't know much about the world of winemaking. Richard Leroy is a winemaker; he's rarely even read comics. But filled with good will and curiosity, the two men exchange professions, and Etienne goes to work in Richard's vineyards and cellar, while Richard, in return, leaps into the world of comics. Providing a true-life representation of how both professions work, this insightful book investigates two fascinating fields, exploring each man's motivations and ultimately revealing that their endeavors and aspirations are not much different
