“This is quite a book and I hope it is read widely throughout the wine world and that it has a huge impact. The fact that current practices have put a halt to evolution for wine grapes, that was news to me. Tasting the Past shocked the hell out of me. Well done!!” —Kermit Lynch, author of Adventures on the Wine Route
“There are so many great stories and characters contained within Tasting the Past.
Anyone who wants to know what else is out there… will want to read this book.
There’s a great big world beyond the French grape.” —Terroirist blog
“Oenophiles will raise a glass to Begos’s excellent exploration of the science and history of wine. This mix of memoir and wine education guide is all-around satisfying. He helpfully finishes many chapters with lists of recommend wines.”—Publishers Weekly
“Kevin Begos has pulled together a wonderfully surprising assortment of characters
and threads to take us on his compelling journey into wine’s origin.”
—Alice Feiring, author of The Dirty Guide to Wine: Following Flavor from Ground to Glass
“This is the most fascinating wine book I’ve read in years.” —Vino-Sphere
