Back cover teaser of Grape Expectations:

I took a deep draught and swirled it around feeling the warming sensation of alcohol on the back of my throat. The wine filled my mouth with plum and blackberry. The finish had a hint of spice and an attractive saline minerality.
‘Delicious.’ I licked my lips. The wine filled me with joy. A picture of a vineyard drenched in sunlight formed in my mind. Sean drew me rudely back to the lounge of small suburban home.
‘How can they be in liquidation if they make wine this good?’

Caro and Sean were confirmed city dwellers. They had safe jobs, a nice house and were living on ready meals. That all changed though when they had the opportunity to achieve their dream of becoming wine-makers in the South of France. In the blink they had sold their house, gathered up their children – a toddler and a babe-in-arms – and headed for Saussignac.


Arriving at their new home, a ten-hectare vineyard, the couple set about renovating the dilapidated eighteenth-century farmhouse and transforming the ‘beyond eccentric’ winery into a successful business. But while the journey from mouth to stomach of a fine red is pure velvet, the transition from city slickers to connoisseurs proved less smooth. Infestations, visits from the local farm ‘police’, a leaking roof and a lost finger were some of the challenges the family faced in their quest to learn how to make wine from the roots up.

Including evocative descriptions of wine and the wine-making process, Grape Expectations is travel writing with adventure at its heart. A passionate account of a captivating mission, this is essential reading not just for wine lovers, but for anyone who has ever longed to follow a dream.

‘In this beautifully written tale of passion, caution, guts, Caro Feely takes us on her heartfelt journey as she and her husband breathe life into an old Bergerac winery, while she and her husband Sean resuscitate their own.’ Alice Feiring, author of Naked Wine: Letting Grapes Do What Comes Naturally and The Battle For Wine And Love .
