I've been reading... er.... listening to (it's an audio book) "The Road to Burgundy: The Unlikely Story of an American Making Wine and a New Life in France" by Ray Walker.
It's a great true story about a young man whose dream is to make wine in France. He leaves his job in finance behind, packs up and starts a new life in Burgundy with a paltry $6000 in savings, no business plan, no winemaking knowledge, and knowing very little French. On top of that he also has a young family. Through a lot of persistence and dumb luck, he manages to become the first American to ever make Grand Cru Burgundy.
Wonderful story, although he also goes into painstaking detail about all the mistakes he made along the way. There are times as a reader you want to grab this fellow and shake some sense into him.
