The Wines of My Life presents 75 exceptional wines chosen by world-renowned French sommelier Éric Beaumard. In this illustrated memoir, Beaumard reflects on some of the most flavorful wines in the world. Along the way, he reveals that a budding career as a cook’s apprentice was cut short by a motorcycle accident that deprived him of the use of his right arm, and how, after months of recovery, he turned his interest in cooking into a lifelong passion for wine. Full of vineyard secrets, fascinating portraits of winemakers, and serious meditations on life, The Wines of My Life is an unforgettable story of one man’s journey—and the indelible wines he tasted along the way.
