● 內文簡介

大家都知道葡萄酒是由一顆顆的葡萄所釀製的,卻很少人知道,全世界有將近1,400種葡萄的品種,但是我們一般人所飲用的80%以上的葡萄酒,是選用其中少數的20種葡萄來釀製的。這究竟是為什麼?其他的98%的葡萄們發生了什麼事?

《Godforsaken Grapes》當中,知名的美食評論家、品酒人暨旅遊作家Jason Wilson將帶領讀者們展開一場獨特的旅程,透過瞭解這些「不受歡迎」的葡萄,看見地緣政治、經濟因素以及時尚風格如何影響人們對於飲食的想法。

作者穿越整個歐洲,從瑞士、奧地利、葡萄牙、義大利、法國,最後回到美洲,追捕狩獵那些晦澀難懂的葡萄酒,以及極少被拿來釀酒的奇特葡萄們。在這趟旅程當中,作者透過與許多頂尖時髦的釀酒師、侍酒師以及探險家們進行深入的對話,瞭解釀酒產業背後的文化與風情。本書是一部結合旅遊、美食與冒險的精彩回憶錄。

● 媒體報導

"Wilson’s signature wit and wisdom returns as he recounts the travel shenanigans that lead him around the world in a rabbit hunt for these obscure and under-the-radar wines. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of the wine industry and an itch to book a ticket to destinations you’ve never heard of before."

(Imbibe Magazine)


"This wonderful book is about so much more than wine. It's also about taste, and aging, and history, and travel, and culture. Above all else, Jason Wilson's Godforsaken Grapes will make you want to live more adventurously and drink more curiously—and never order another pinot noir again."

(Tom Bissell author of Apostle and The Disaster Artist)


"Armed with an archeologist's fanatical determination, a traveler’s deep curiosity, and an encyclopedic knowledge of his subject, Jason Wilson takes a deep dive into the world of rare wines. Original, obsessive, and wildly insightful. Drink it down!"

(Andrew McCarthy actor, director, and author of the New York Times Bestselling travel memoir The Longest Way Home)
