From the author of The Physician and Shaman now comes this story of a young manthe grapes he grows, the wine he fashions, the women he loves, and his struggle against an evil that seeks to destroy him. Already an international bestseller. Josep Alvarez is a young man in the tiny grape-growing village of Santa Eullia, in northern Spain, where his father grows black grapes that are turned into cheap vinegar. Joseph loves the agricultural life, but he is the second son, and his fathers vineyard will be inherited by his brother Donat, the firstborn. Josep needs to keep his hands in the soil. He yearns for a job growing grapes and for an opportunity to marry Teresa Gallego. In Madrid, an assassination plot, conceived against the political leader of Spain by men of wealth and power, creates a storm of intrigue that sucks into its vortex a group of innocent young farm workers in Santa Eullia. How Joseps life is changed drastically by these events, and how, ironically, they gradually turn him into an inspired vintner with an evolving vision of life, is the fascinating story of The Winemaker.

It seemed appropriate to include the Spanish cava that we‘ll have with Christmas dinner, since this delightful book tells the story of a young 19 century Spanish man who becomes a winemaker. It‘s been quite a while since I‘ve read this author, and this reminded me of why I like his books. An interesting, yet relatively straightforward story, good characterization, and a dose of history. 4⭐️ Thanks, @Crazeedi

Crazeedi I'm so glad you enjoyed, yes I've liked his books too! 2mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled This sounds interesting and something different- stacked! 2mo

I‘m supposed to lead a tour at the botanical garden where I volunteer, but it‘s a miserable, rainy day. Waiting to see if anyone comes. In the meantime, my current read and my Kindle are waiting with me 😄

I just haven‘t been able to stick with my current read, even though I like it. It‘s just that this has been calling to me from the bookshelf. I really feel like I need a glass of wine to go with it, but it‘s a bit too early 😂

Redwritinghood Happy birthday! 🎂🎂 3mo

#gratefulreads #bookandbeverage I admit it‘s cheating, since it‘s only water in my favorite wine glass. It‘s too early in the day to imbibe, but I‘m going to have to have a glass of wine while reading this! 😄

OriginalCyn620 Nice pic! 😊 3mo
Nute I like drinking water from fancy glasses!😁 3mo

#bookmail is the best mail, especially when it‘s unexpected! Thank you, thank you @Crazeedi for this. It‘s on my TBR, and I‘m really looking forward to reading it. And I was just thinking yesterday that I owe you a long letter 😊

Crazeedi I've been thinking of you lately, and I remembered you wanted to read. I definitely recommend his trilogy staring with this one if you havent read. I donated to library so many books, including these before I had Litsy 3mo
Crazeedi An I owe you a letter, I was trying to make the post office and forgot a note a bookmark! 3mo
Lynnsoprano Oh, I love The Physician, probably one of the 10 best historical novels I‘ve ever read! 3mo

Great great book. I totally enjoyed! It's the story of Josep who acquires his family's land and goes from growing grapes used only to make vinegar to a bodega with premium vino! 5 ⭐

Andrew65 Sounds interesting. Stacked! 6mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 I think you might enjoy! Have you read any of his books? He has a 3 book series starts with this one, the Cole family trilogy 6mo
Crazeedi @Andrew65 I have enjoyed every one I've read "the physician" and the second one "the shaman" were very good , the 3rd one wasnt as good but still interesting 6mo

Andrew65 @Crazeedi I own a copy of the Physician but never read it. I obviously need to. 👍 6mo
Lynnsoprano @crazeedi @Andrew65 The Physician is one of my favorite books of all time! I agree, The Shaman was good but not as good, and I kind of pushed myself to finish the third. This book is new to me. Must add to TBR! 6mo
Andrew65 @Lynnsoprano A glowing recommendation, thanks. Will seek to get to it very soon. 😊👍 (edited) 6mo

I am on holiday for the next week, so I went shopping this morning... It was really peacefully, after I managed to park my car...

Look what I found today. There is also a 'white wine edition'. 😊😘

julesG What about alcohol free? 13mo
julesG Also, enjoy your holiday. 13mo
Sarah83 @julesG this would be an alternative. Haven't found this one yet 😉 13mo

Jumping ahead on #readinthenewyear because I‘m not going to stay awake much longer and we aren‘t having any champagne this evening. However, my son opened a wonderful Bordeaux with dinner, and I think that counts for #booksandbubbles. Happy New Year, everyone! 🎉

1. Wine - Red, white and book 2. I am guilty of buying books based on covers all the time. 3. Beach all day everyday 4. Fantasy I get enough reality in life 😊 5. Honestly these fictional men are the reason why women waste so much time on men who are mean to them in real life hoping they turn out like these two. Give me Colonel Brandon and Edward from Sense and Sensibility 🙂#bookishwouldyourather

Scurvygirl Yes! Enough reality!! 3y
rabbitprincess Yes! Colonel Brandon! 😍 3y
Kalalalatja Good point in number 5 - Darcy just seemed like the obvious choice, but Captain Wentworth will forever have my heart ❤️ 3y
