Richard W H Bray: Salt & Old Vines
Richard W H Bray: Salt & Old Vines – True Tales of Winemaking in the Roussillon, unbound, £9.99, 195 pages, pbk
Richard Bray started off in the wine trade at Luvians Bottelshop in Fife, Scotland. Then worked as a head sommelier for two years and now works for Swig as well as Luvians. In 2008 he did his first vintage down in the Roussillon in the steep and unforgiving vineyards of Banyuls and Collioure.
This is a lively and very readable insider’s account of what working a vintage is really like. Certainly recommended.
