Godforsaken Grapes

A Slightly Tipsy Journey Through the World of Strange, Obscure, and Underappreciated Wine
Written by Jason Wilson | Narrated by Jonathan Horvath
Did you know there’s a whole hidden world of wine out there? Pour a drink and put on this entertaining audiobook to set off on a spirited journey through obscure grapes and little-known wines. “Funny, enlightening, and prodigiously researched” (San Francisco Chronicle).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world—from altesse to zierfandler—but 80 percent of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes. In Godforsaken Grapes, Jason Wilson looks at how that came to be and embarks on a journey to discover what we miss.

Stemming from his own growing obsession, Wilson moves far beyond the “noble grapes,” hunting down obscure and underappreciated wines from Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, France, Italy, the United States, and beyond. In the process, he looks at why these wines fell out of favor (or never gained it in the first place), what it means to be obscure, and how geopolitics, economics, and fashion have changed what we drink. A combination of travel memoir and epicurean adventure, Godforsaken Grapes is an entertaining love letter to wine.
