Publisher Description

A delightful, best-selling tale about the business and pleasure of wine, adapted into a Ridley Scott movie starring Russell Crowe and Marion Cotillard.

Max Skinner has recently lost his job at a London financial firm and just as recently learned that he has inherited his late uncle’s vineyard in Provence. On arrival he finds the climate delicious, the food even better, and two of the locals ravishing. Unfortunately, the wine produced on his new property is swill. Why then are so many people interested in it? Enter a beguiling Californian who knows more about wine than Max does—and may have a better claim to the estate. Fizzy with intrigue, bursting with local color and savor, A Good Year is Peter Mayle, beloved author of A Year in Provence, at his most entertaining.

A Fun Read

I enjoyed the movie very much and read the book to see how close it was to the movie. Well, it is quite a different story, but also a very enjoyable and well told story. It is clear that Mr. Mayle enjoys his profession.

Not a Good Year

Big disappointment. The story line varies greatly from the movie and does not deliver on romance or mystery.
The relationships and back stories are thin and don’t develop the reader’s empathy with the characters. Food becomes the pivotal player.
