I totally loved the idea of learning soil types and how they impact wines. This book delivered this in a very confusing way that hopped all over the planet and made it very hard to follow. In the end, it was hard to learn anything. I am also sure they wrote this book wearing their brand new Birkenstocks. The idea that if it's not organic its garbage is just a very biased and narrow way of looking at wine

The subject matter itself is quite interesting and the addition of Pascaline's expertise makes this a worthwhile read. However, the performance is wretched. The reading is quite robotic and she struggles with many of the foreign words and even some not so foreign. This is especially egregious with the grape name Syrah, (its Sy-RAH, not syruw) the region Willamette (rhymes with dammit, dammit) and anything in Italian. I get it, the reader is American, but wine is international, with many regions and grapes all of which should be pronounced correctly.
