    Story
    (44)

    Ray Walker had a secure career in finance until a wine-tasting vacation ignited a passion that he couldn't stifle. Ray neglected his work, spending hours poring over ancient French winemaking texts, learning the techniques and the language, and daydreaming about vineyards. After Ray experienced his first taste of wine from Burgundy, he could wait no longer. He quit his job and went to France to start a winery - with little money, a limited command of French, and virtually no winemaking experience.

    Kevin says: "Unfortunate narration"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Road to Burgundy again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to it again. The book, to me, was very moving and poignant. It is about a man that literally drops everything to pursue his dreams and succeeds.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fortuitousness of finding the grapes and the funding to pay for them.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, my first book from this reader. I think he did an excellent job conveying the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the farmer decided to to sell Ray the grapes.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book for any wine lover that dreams of ever producing their own wine.
