More Description

Nearly ten years after her husband was killed in a car accident--and three days before the 2003 release of her first edition of this book--Paula Moulton took a risk and enrolled in a ten-month wine management program at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.
In this second edition of "Seasons Among the Vines," Moulton details the adventures that ensue when she leaves her home in Sonoma to face the unknown in France. In Paris, she has not only the struggles of living in a foreign country to cope with but also the rigors of the French academic system--complete with a one-month stint in Bergerac as a cellar rat and a six-week internship as a sommelier in a prestigious restaurant off Le Champs Elysees. Interspersed throughout her narrative is advice for weekend gardeners and wine-loving suburbanites on how to make wine at home, as well as everything a reader could ever need to know about successful food and wine pairing, how to make intelligent decisions when choosing wine, and how to smell, swirl, and taste wine like a pro.
Full of international escapades, unforeseen wine disasters, and new-world twists on old-world secrets, "Seasons Among the Vines "paints a bona fide picture of what it means to follow a dream even after suffering great loss.
