Fancy setting up a vineyard? Here's the guide... | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Have you ever fancied making your own wine? Sally Easton reviews The Winegrowers' Handbook.

 

Belinda Kemp and Emma Rice will take you through everything you need to know about setting up a vineyard in the UK. From buying land to dealing with Customs and Excise (or avoiding them) see to be covered.

 

I've not read it myself, but at only £10 I'm sure it's worthwhile for anybody thinking of giving grape growing a go.

An interview with MIchel Roland about his book (In French)

An interview with MIchel Roland about his book (In French) | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Michel Roland is probably one of the most loved and most loathed characters in French wine.

 

Read this short interview about his book. It translates well with Google.

 

Is he a demon, making all wines bigger, bolder, cleaner versions of themselves? Or, the devil, pushing wines towards a single regional character. This certainly shows some of the complexity of the man.

Eat like an economist, dine like a king - book review

Eat like an economist, dine like a king - book review | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

The Indie's Will Dean reviews "Eat like an economist, dine like a king" by Tyler Cowen.

 

This book's gone on my reading list. It sounds like a great bit of fun, possibly with some useful advice.

 

It's nice to hear about a very intelligent person writing with some whit about things that they love. It sounds like a great mix of advice, background and economics.
