Summary
  • "Late one summer evening, Wilberforce - young, rich, work-obsessed, and unknowingly lonely - makes an unexpected detour that leads him to the home of Francis Black, an eccentric and enigmatic wine merchant." "Wine and hospitality flow freely in Black's cellar, and Wilberforce finds himself drawn into a life he never could have imagined. Infatuated by his newfound taste for fine wines, his charming new friends, and the woman whom he will eventually marry, he believes he has finally found happiness. But Wilberforce will soon learn that the cellar holds some unpalatable secrets and that passion comes at a price."
  • "In a beautiful, backward tour through the vintage years in one man's life, we meet Wilberforce at the end of his descent and travel with him to the beginning - where he discovered wine, life, and the possibility of connection. Bordeaux is a haunting story of obsession and addiction, loyalty and betrayal - and a rare and poignant look at the making and unmaking of a character."--BOOK JACKET
