In To Burgundy and Back Again, Roy presents a richly evocative account of their journey—one replete with discovery, adventure, and poignant surprises. Written in the tradition of A Year in Provence and Sideways, this elegantly penned book will delight wine lovers and armchair travelers alike.
Roy Cloud runs Vintage '59, a boutique importer based in Washington, DC, specializing in French wines. Roy earned a degree in writing from New York University. He's worked as a carpenter in California, and, once upon a time, he caught salmon in Alaska. This is his first book.
“Cloud’s account clips along with ease, including passages of lush, expressive language that shapes the idyllic beauty of the French countryside as well as the unending potential of a fine wine. Readers will relish his experience, and those who love wine will ache to tour the country themselves or, at the least, wander down the French wine aisle to unearth a great bottle of their own.”
