● 內文簡介

Explore the world of rare and obscure wine grapes, and discover why we drink what we drink and what we’re missing out on.

There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world but 80% of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes. In Godforsaken Grapes, food and wine expert and travel writer Jason Wilson looks at how this came to be and takes readers on a passionate, wide-ranging journey through the other 98% of wine grapes. From Switzerland, Austria, and Portugal, through Bordeaux, Southwest France, German-speaking northern Italy, and back to California’s Anderson Valley and New York’s Finger Lakes, Wilson delves into rare and wonderful grapes. He looks at what it means to be obscure, what indigenous grapes can tell us about culture, and how domestic policies, geopolitics, economics, and fashion have changed what we drink

Blending extensive travels in wine-producing regions, and conversations with master sommeliers, cutting-edge hipster winemakers, and explorers on an obsessive hunt for the rarest grapes in the world, Godforsaken Grapes is an entertaining love letter to wine. After all, drinking the same thing all the time is boring.
