Gerald Asher, who served as "Gourmet's" wine editor for thirty years, has drawn together this selection of his essays, published in "Gourmet" and elsewhere, for the collective insight they give into why a wine should always be an expression of a place and a time. Guiding the reader through twenty-seven diverse wine regions in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and California, he shows how every wine worth drinking is a reflection of its terroir - in the broadest sense of that untranslatable word. In evocative reminiscences of wines, winemakers, and the meals he has had with them, he weaves together climate, terrain, and local history, sharing his knowledge and experience so skillfully that we learn as we are entertained and come to understand, gradually, that the meaning and pleasure of a wine lie always in the context of its origin and in the concurrence of where, how, and with whom we enjoy it.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A chance to revisit the beauty of wine writing in pure form." San Francisco Chronicle "Amid a flood of mediocre, silly and pretentious wine writers, Asher stands out as a true craftsman and gentleman journalist who knows wine and can tell a story with wit and insight." -- Sasha Paulsen Napa Valley Register "Compelling... A thoughtful, provocative journey." -- Mary Gorman-McAdams The Kitchn "A fascinating read." -- Bob Walch Watsonville Register-Pajaronian "A terrific introduction to one of the greatest wine writers of our times... Complexity [that's] easy to savor." -- Lara Douglass Wine & Spirits Magazine
