Descripción de editorial
THE WINE PROSPECTOR – Adventures of a flying winemaker, is an entertaining, behind-the-scenes travelogue of flying winemaker John Weeks. Scouring over twenty countries on five continents, The Wine Prospector not only produced outstanding wines, but has collected memorable stories along the way. Far from being your run-of-the-mill travel book or how-to-appreciate wine lecture, The Wine Prospector looks at the lighter side of the wine industry, and profiles his peers, travel, and himself. While taking the reader on the adventure of sniffing out 'wine gems' anywhere from New World South Australia to Old World Northern Spain, The Wine Prospectors’ foraging reveals the once hidden aspects of the wine business.
Making many friends and a few enemies along the way, The Wine Prospector is written with humour, but presented with an underlying passion for the people and experiences that make wine one of the few pursuits that cross the many borders from former Russia to northern Queensland.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Adelaide, South Australia, between the great vintages of 1964 and 1966, John Weeks has since set about correcting this anomaly by searching out the finest wine and the best life has to offer in the greatest, and not so great, wine regions of the world. Weeks has surpassed a recognised winemakers’ milestone of 30 vintages. He has lived in Australia, France, Portugal and South Africa, but has always had the view that “home is where the grapes are” and has worked in wine regions on five continents.His recent travels included a year-long mission to curate the collection of not only the best wines, but the best of the more than 400 regions that he has visited.
