France is often considered as the country where the best wines are produced, but how did the cultivation of the vine in our country from the Romans to our current appellations come about ? How did our regions create different vineyards with such diverse characteristics? This is what this fascinating book makes us discover by telling us the particular relations that our society has maintained with the vines since the origins of its exploitation in Gaul until the creation of contemporary viticulture in the last century.

The author:

Pierre Salles studied oenology in Bordeaux with such renowned teachers as Pascal Ribéreau-Gayon, Émile Peynaud and Guy Guimberteau who have left their mark on contemporary winemaking. Passionate about wine and a great collector of old books on the subject, he then worked in various wine-related jobs in the cooperative sector and became the executive director of a large cooperative group.
He leads the very active wine club Le Rolle de Bonson.
