I’m pleased to share the jacket art for my upcoming book, The Road to Burgundy, which should be out July 2013. It will be available for preorder on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com under GOTHAM, an imprint of Penguin USA.
The book will detail much of my journey from my days working in California in Real Estate and in Finance, through discovering wine in Italy, studying Bordeaux – and then drinking/dreading it, to finding Burgundy by luck, leaving my career at Merrill Lynch to wash barrels in Sonoma County, California for one harvest before leaving to Burgundy to start our own winery, looking for grapes and trying to pull it all together, before finally moving my whole family to Burgundy for good. There is a lot to cover in just a span of seven years. Lots of food, travel, wine, studying French, looking for financing. Everything is in there. Best of all, it has given me the chance to write the story in my own words, which place you in my shoes for the highs and the lows up until this point.
I hope that you will all join me in retracing the steps of this surreal journey.
PS I feel quite fortunate that they asked me to shoot the cover art for my book. Didn’t expect that, and I think it turned out beyond expectations.
