The author would like to thank John Wiley & Sons, Inc. for permission to use a passage from
Knowing and Making Wine
by Emile Peynaud, translated from the French by Alan Spencer. Published by John Wiley & Sons, New York, 1984.
Most of this narrative takes place in the California wine country and on the Côte d’Or in France. Liberties have been taken in portraying these landscapes and their wineries, restaurants, and institutions. The world represented, while bearing some similarity to reality, is fictitious, as are its characters and events. Any resemblance to actual incidents or to actual persons living or dead is entirely coincidental.
