Publisher's Summary

When Caro and Sean find the perfect ten-hectare vineyard in Saussignac, it seems their dreams of becoming wine-makers in the south of France are about to come true. But they arrive in France with their young family (a toddler and a new-born) to be faced with a dilapidated eighteenth-century farmhouse and an enterprise that may never, ever make them a living. Undeterred by mouse infestations, a leaking roof, treacherous hordes of insects, visits from the local farm ‘police’ and a nasty accident with an agricultural trimmer, Caro and Sean set about transforming their ‘beyond eccentric’ winery into a successful business as they embark on the biggest adventure of their lives – learning to make wine from the roots up.

Courageous and informative

This book is an inspirational account of how a young couple have managed to live their dream. Truth makes it a compelling read. I would like to visit their winery and this beautiful region of France.

Makes you think twice

I have been thinking about moving abroad to do the same thing so it was fascinating to hear the trials and tribulations of a family who had actually gone and done it. It definitely made me think twice about it and at the same time made an entertaining listen. Recommend it!
