Get ready to find some things you never expected to find in a book about wine. Things like regrets, migrant labor, war, financial crises, and post-apartheid economics. Things, too, like following a calling, doing something even though it makes no sense, and creating the life you imagine for yourself. For the people you'll meet in these 12 chapters, wine does so much more than quench thirst. Wine is how they express themselves to the world. It's how they put food on the table for their families.
