Review quote

"A beautifully written nonfiction chronicle of a year in the life of a vineyard ... and the struggle to make the very best pinot noir in the world. The Grail is a reminder of the art, science and grapes that constitute great wine-making, and it's particularly good with a nice glass of pinot!" -Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist
