‘Fiona Morrison Thienpont has written a book from a viewpoint no other writer, as far as I know, has ever possessed: a seat at the heart of the action.’
Hugh Johnson

An up-close and personal insight into 10 of Europe’s most celebrated winemaking families that chronicles their triumphs, trials and tribulations through successive generations.

An up-close and personal account of 10 wine families and their trials, tribulations and successes. Not just any wine families: the likes of Frescobaldi, Gaja, Torres, Perrin, Niepoort, Liger-Belair, Müller, Knoll, Palacios and Thienpont (Fiona’s own family), known and revered across the world. Fiona Morrison was welcomed into the homes of each (with her photographer) and was able to capture the ‘behind the scenes’ excitement of wine making in the kind of vivid detail impossible to achieve in a magazine article. A must-read for any wine lover, Fiona offers both intimate portraits and topical insights, as she raises questions about climate change, globalization, how to make a family business commercial, organic trends, and the tricky business of inheritance tax.
