    by Robert V. Camuto

    “[Corkscrewed] inspires thirst and curiosity… . Just as a trip around the French countryside reveals dozens of dishes that never make it to French restaurants in the United States, Mr. Camuto”s adventures will introduce readers to little-known French wines like Domaine Borrely-Martin of Provence, Chateau Mosse of Roussillon and Domaine des Tres Cantous of Gaillac and to the passionate individuals that persevere despite the absence of monetary reward. These may not be the wines that earn one spurs as a connoisseur, but they certainly may produce a worthy sense of humility at how much there is to learn. I can”t wait to drink them.” —Eric Asimov, New York Times
