Book Review: Grape Expectations

CITY slickers Sean and Caro Feely had a dream. Give up the rat race and run a successful vineyard in France.

For them this crazy dream came true, but not after lots of disasters on the way. The couple and their two young children took the plunge and bought a 10-hectare vineyard and they worked hard to transform it into the organic wine estate and school, plus gite rental business it is today.

Caro wrote about her expectations and this book is a testament to the gamble the family took. And yes, it will have you reaching for the bottle and dreaming of a new adventure!
