Among the residents of a small Dorset town called Folly Down, an unlikely struggle between the forces of good and evil is taking place. For a single winter's evening, Time stands still and the bitter-sweet gift of awareness descends upon the people. Because Mr Weston the wine merchant has come to town and the advert atop his Ford van lights up the sky above the village. Whether the villagers choose to buy Mr Weston's light or dark wine is up to them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mr Weston's Good Wine is a book without parallel. It is an allegory, it is a bucolic farce, it is a religious (or anti-religious?) masterpiece" -- A N Wilson * Daily Telegraph *
"The greatest value of his work, though, is in showing that it is still possible to write about the primordial human experiences to which religion is a response...Very few 20th-century authors have the knack of writing convincingly of first and last things. A religious writer without any vestige of belief, Theodore Powys is one of them" -- John Gray * New Statesman *
"Grimly brilliant" -- John Carey * Sunday Times *
"[It is] generally considered his masterpiece" * Washington Post *
"A writer who far outshone his contemporaries" * Spectator *
