Wine & Spirits Magazine 20091201Reseña del editor:
This eclectic collection at last brings to a wide audience the irreverent, zany voice of Randall Grahm, visionary California winemaker and founder of Bonny Doon Vineyard. An iconoclastic send-up of the wine industry and a celebration of unsung grape varieties, the book features, among other things, Grahm's hilarious literary parodies - Joyce, Kafka, Pynchon, Salinger, and others - together with song lyrics, other snarky satires, poems, lectures, and more. Subtle undertones of gravitas with faint suggestions of earnestness lie beneath the humor, however, as Grahm passionately addresses the state of wine today: Where in wine does 'greatness' truly repose? How might true originality in New World wines be found? Do New World winemakers have the integrity and courage to unreservedly embrace terroir? This trove includes a very personal take on "Dante's Inferno" (Grahm's own vision of Wine Hell) and a collection of tunes from the rock opera "Born to Rhone". Other pieces offer a fascinating glimpse into the history of the Rhone Ranger wine movement and of Bonny Doon itself, told through the story of its adventurous wine labels. "Been Doon So Long" is a highly entertaining journey to find the 'truth of all things that may be found in the unlikely medium of a wineglass'.
